2023 1-4955-1079-4 212 pages
"The present bibliography lists more than 300 different tutors by some 200 authors, published during approximately one hundred years, c.1760-1860. ...[This time] period is not arbitrarily chosen. The middle of the eighteenth century represents an important break in the history of the guitar in that staff notation was introduced in place of tablature. Accordingly, this survey begins with the very first guitar methods in staff notation, published in Paris in the late 1750s." -Erik Stenstadvold (Introduction) Originally published by Pendragon Press in 2010, this is an oversized, softcover book.
