Greetings, Stewart -

I have a book on notation which covers a lot of ground, and which I can
highly recommend:

Music notation, a manual of modern practice.
Read, Gardner.
Boston, Crescendo Publishers, 1972.
ISBN : 087597080X.

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know of any good books on the subject of music engraving? A
book containing rules/tips/do/don'ts would be quite a useful investment
I think.
