    Default Bellenghi and Weidt mandocello methods

    Attached are 2 pdf files (Part 1 and Part 2) of the Bellenghi (Giuseppe Bellenghi, Bologna 1847-Florence Oct 17, 1902) mandocello method from 1896. I scanned these at the Library of Congress using an app on my iphone. You will note that many pages are curved. This is because the paper was too brittle to actually bend flat without destroying the piece and so I did the best I could with what I had. In any case, it should be good for a look through ... and more power to you if you can negotiate Italian!

    Also attached is a mandocello method by A.J. Weidt from 1921. I scanned this with my iphone as well, but I could flatten the pages, so the quality will be a little better (I hope). The Library's copy of this included only three of the five parts that make up the whole thing ... so the attached is incomplete. Nevertheless, again, it should be good for a look through ...

    A hearty thanks to Mr. Tichenor for his valuable help getting these large files posted!
