The Atelier Philidor restores, edits and publishes Early Music Facsimiles intended for musicians who wish to play and study important works of the past in faithful copies of the publications in which they were first issued. The original notation and engraving are carefully preserved as well as publishers' corrections - whether effected by collettes or by manuscript insertions. Blemishes are suppressed as are owner's stamps, marginalia, memos regarding performance, and similar markings peculiar to particular copies. Format is modernized when the ancient one is inappropriate for modern performance. Facsimiles are available in paper version & digital version. Paper versions are printed on ivory paper with ivory card stock covers and golden metallic binding.
