Small Quarto Size [approx 17.5cm x 24cm]. Fair-good condition, Re-backed at some stage. Boards are worn and spine repaired yet again. Front hinge has cloth tape repairs applied. Very scarce original edition. A handwritten note is pasted to "FFEP". It reads "This is an original English edition of Mr J.B. Logier's famous work. It contains all the matter of importance as taught by the author in his world-wide schools. Many important remarks rules and examples of interest are altogether omitted from the Modern edition, while errors of notation are too frequently found in the published examples, a fault however for which the present volume is also not free. The excellent collection of "Themes" for students use, the "Manual" and Appendix thereto are entirely absent from the edition now extant, which therefore can scarcely be said to fairly represent the Logerian method, while it is apt to create a wrong impression on those who have been partly prejudiced by false statements, caused by jealousy against Logier's easy and progressive plan" Signed David Cope, Professor of music, Melbourne & Sydney, Australia.
