Bach Sonata for Violin & Continuo BWV 1021, cover
More recent research shows that the sonata is actually a collective effort, with Anna Magdalena copying the main music text, and Johann Sebastian Bach adding the movement headings, key signatures and (in an extremely careful way) figures to the basso continuo. The mss were produced on behalf of the Bach student Heinrich Abraham von Boineburg and eventually ended up in the possession of Manfred Gorke; they were opened to the public for the first time in 1935. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Limited edition of 1100 copies. Distinctive portfolio with green paper boards, black linen spine, and hinged flaps. $80
