As a dealer in musical autographs, I felt the need for an alphabetical source book of signatures, to help other dealers & collectors identify/compare. Presently I have published three issues, each with 300-400 different names, reproduced from original signatures, & other dealers/auction catalogs. Birth\death dates have been included along with identifications. Each issue is limited to 300 copies. Work continues on a fourth issue (3rd Supplement), hopefully available by 1996. Reviewer Michael Saks in Pen & Quill: "...The field of classical musicians, composers & singers in unquestionably highly specialized...the availability of authentic autograph examples is quite limited...Beethoven's signature is reproduced in both Germanic script & the more familiar form...Variants of Mozart's signature & others are also given...Includes the first cyrillic signature of Caruso that I have seen...If one avoided the purchase of even one non-authentic example, the book(s) would have paid for (themselves)..."
