5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 12 Jan 2010
Every possible aspect of notation prior to the second edition's publishing in 1979 has been mentioned in this book. Unless you are trying to create an entirely new syntax for music, this book is all you will need. Harmonics (which have irritated me in terms of notation for some time) is explained in a concise and effective manner, and this is what makes the book the triumph that it is.

Recommended as well as a 'go-to-guide', as it features Italian/German terms for tempo, and includes a very useful index highlighting all the notation symbols in the book, with picture, name and page reference.

A manual indeed - and the only one you are likely ever to need.
