Facsimiles of Manuscript Sources

Facsimiles of Printed Sources:

In presenting facsimiles of original printed sources in bibliographies, one should give the publication in two separate steps:
  1. Give a normal bibliography entry using the original title page (etc.), with original author, title, publisher (and in early books, the printer), date, etc. Use normal hanging indentation. (Ignore the modern reprint for this step.)
  2. As an annotation, indicate: Facsimile, and give the modern publication information, and other information as necessary (such as "Introduction by…," and the like).
The following are samples that may be used as models:

Choice Ayres, Songs, and Dialogues To Sing To The Theorbo-Lute, or Bass-Viol. Being
Most of the Newest Ayres and Songs, Sung at Court, And at the Publick Theatres...
Newly Re-printed with large Additions. London: Printed by William Godbid…[for]

Facsimiles of Manuscript Sources:

For manuscript sources (hence not originally printed) one must refer directly to the modern printing in the main part of the entry. The annotation describes the original context:

The Burwell Lute Tutor. Facsimile edition with an introductory study by Robert Spencer.
Leeds: Boethius Press, 1974.
A manuscript instruction manual, ca. 1661–1672, for eleven and twelve course
baroque lute, with sixteen pieces of music by Dubut, Pinel, Vincent, the Marquis de
Mortmar, and three of the Gaultiers—English, Vieux, and Jeune. The student copied
the text of the tutor, after which the teacher (possibly John Rogers) filled in all the
musical examples. The manuscript is now in the collection of Robert Spencer.
Chansonnier of Marguerite of Austria. Facsimile edition. Peer, Belgium: Alamire, 1984.
Choirbook of motets, etc., ca. 1500. Brussels, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, Afdeling
Handschriften, Handschrift 11239.
