'Britcher's Scores 1790-1805'. A boxed set of the fifteen issues in facsimile, with a commentary by David Rayvern Allen. Christopher Saunders, Newnham on Severn 2003. Published in a limited edition of 212, each set signed by Sir Tim Rice, President of M.C.C., this copy being number 180. Before Britcher, scores were notched on sticks of wood. He was among the first to put them down on paper and between 1790 and 1803 he produced an annual pamphlet listing the principal scores of the year, not just in London but around the country. The scores for 1804 and 1805 were collected into one pamphlet and published by Stanhope and Graham in 1806. The originals are very rare, and no person or institution possesses a full set. This set reproduces all 15 pamphlets in exact facsimile, and they are accompanied by a lengthy commentary, specially written by David Rayvern Allen. Each set is housed in a quarter leather book box with slipcase. VG
