This is a complete facsimile reprint of the first edition of 1812 of Mauro Giuliani's Studio per la Chitarra, op. 1, with a new introduction.  This edition is particularly valuable for anyone who wishes to have Giuliani's original text. It is fully legible for performance, and while it is clearly an early nineteenth century edition, it presents no problems to the modern player.  Anyone who wishes to examine this major work of Giuliani will do well to consult this edition.

If you prefer the music re-engraved, the new Tecla edition of op. 1 in Giuliani's Complete Studies (Tecla 105) gives the complete text re-engraved but keeps strictly to the original.  (Some of the modern editions of Giuliani's op. 1 on the market depart greatly from the original, often without saying so, and many of them are incomplete, giving only parts of the original.)

The book has four parts: 120 arpeggios for the right hand; sixteen pieces designed especially for left hand practice; twelve examples on style and ornaments; and twelve lessons. As well as the music, it has text in Italian, French, and German, to which we have added a modern English translation. It was considered so important in its own time that the original publisher, Artaria, paid Giuliani 600 florins for it, which was a very large sum indeed for that time. Despite the opus number 1, it was not in fact Giulianiís first work; rather, the opus number was probably reserved for it by the composer because of its perceived importance.
