The Printed Music and Recorded Sound collections contain rarities such as printed scores bearing autographs. Among them are autographs of well-known composers signed a copy just after its publication. One can find many copies inscribed by the owner. Dedication copis with author's presentation inscription to someone, including the Library, are not infrequent.
