The bit about the Italian manuscript F:Pn.Res.Vmc ms. 59, fol. 108v is
the end of the section on Italy although it doesn't appear in the list on
the Front Page.
What does the pen drawing of a guitar look like on the fol. 2v of this MS
(you've got a photocopy of it)? I'm particularly interested in the number of
pegs if they are at all shown and / or distinguishable.
The Res. Vmf.35 has a lovely pen drawing of a vaulted-back guitar with 9
pegs, so I'm just curious ...
Also, did you have a chance to see Millioni's 1636 edition (Res. Vmf. 44)
which is supposed to contain alfabeto for a 4-string / course Italian
chitarrino (ghitarra italiana)? Just wondering if it's got any indications
for its stringing.
