    That looks like my copy of the Goichberg. It’s still technically under copyright, but I don’t know if anyone took over the assets to plucked string editions. It’s definitely no longer available for sale and the number of copies in the wild are not very prevalent.

    I know I talked to The original copyist for this book, and with my last contact he didn’t have any of the additional manuscripts. If Fannie has them, I already offered to do all of the typesetting free of charge and release the second volume of the book since it would be wonderful to have the complete set. In fact, any manuscripts I know we’d all be happy to archive digitally for the future to ensure their continuity for future generations.

    Would that original copyist be Terry Pender? We've been in touch, and he has offered to rummage through his archives for anything of relevance. Should hear back this weekend.

    Yeah, that’s who it was. He had said he never had the second 50. He thought the original 50 came from Neil Gladd (another awesome guy) with corrections and fingerings. This was back in 2016. I don’t think Neil ever got back with him because we left it at that it looks like. My hope is someone in the family would have them or have given them to someone to take care of.

    Hah, it's funny, Terry mentioned he remembered fielding a similar request to mine some years back... must have been you! He also mentioned Neil Gladd. Have you tried to reach out to Neil? I'll do so if not.

    I believe I tried him directly but I never heard back from him. I know he’s busy. He’s on the site sometimes.

    I believe that Fannie (Sol's wife) passed away in 2005. I think you would have to be get in touch with the children. When I was in the NY Mandolin Orchestra (in the 1980s) she was still playing in the first mandolin section on a lovely Lyon & Healy A.

    " I may try to reach out to the surviving Goichbergs in time as well. I will keep y'all updated when and if anything comes through. "

    I did hear from Goichberg's daughter when I was searching materials for last year's CMSA Solo Mandocello session. She said she did not have copies but was happy to grant permission for use. I did not want to start a chain of hungry mandocello players contacting her, so I did not (and will not) post a lot of personal contact information. Again, she did not have copies, so that line of search would probably be fruitless.

    I have to laugh at the idea of there being hordes hungry of mandocello players period That said, I can definitely understand your rationale here, and appreciate the perspective. The only reason I might still want to reach out is in case she has some insight as to WHO MAY have that volume. Surely someone's got to know, right?
