The book consists of studies from the three main composers and performers of the early 19th century - Sor (50 studies), Giuliani (25) and Carcassi (25, all his Opus 60 '25 Progressive Studies', considered an essential work). Each piece has a commentary pointing out the pedagogical features of the study. Fingerings are largely Noad's own (not all the composers added fingering indications.
I would also recommend Noad's series of anthologies. My personal favourites are the Renaissance and Baroque collections. They too have good historical and performance notes and are attractively illustrated.
I like given fingerings as they help the player prepare for the next position in time. These markings are usually forgotten but can be very useful. As a hobby guitarist I like also the progressive nature of the selected studies. All in all I like this book a lot.
this book can give you months of work and good time!
