    Bemerkungen: The document consists of a manuscript full score, an annotated manuscript melodic outline of the ballet, a copy of the printed piano score of the ballet (Milano, Ricordi, [1873]), and a printed synopsis for the 1874-1875 production at the Teatro Regio, Torino; laid into a half-morocco box
    The full score (oblong 4to) consists of 7 unbound fascicles (11, 25 + 9, 13, 30, 17, 16, 31f); performance markings added in pencil and blue crayon. The melodic outline (or "melodic guide") (oblong 1o) consists of an incpl abstraction of the leadingmelodies of the ballet, with annotations and notated choreography; the outline wants the prologue, the final numbers of acts 1 and 3, and acts 3 and 4
    Acquired by John M. Ward in 1991 from Richard Macnutt (book-dealer)
    The following comments derive from Macnutt's description of the document (where "MG" "melodic guide" and "FS" "full score"): "The following details of the six acts should be noted: Act 1. In MG the last fascicle of 4 leaves is a rewrite and the preceding leaf should have been cancelled; it was presumably kept to preserve the pencilled notes already on it. Act 2. PR contains two passages cut in FS and MG. This is because Act 2 in MG is later than the rest of the manuscript. Not only does it showthese cuts but it is unannotated; its watermark is not found elsewhere in MG but it agrees with that of the greater part of FS. Act 3. Some changes from the text of MG have been made before PR was printed and some after. FS has one slight lengthening, in order to make a break before the lead in to the ballabile. Act 4. FS shows two cuts made after PR was printed. Act 5. PR and FS agree. Act 6. Most cuts in the MG version were made before PR was printed, but the finale was tightened up afterwards. There is a purple insertion in MG which replaces entirely the old pages that follow it: these preserve a lengthy discarded piece."
