original calf binding (back repaired), in the writing of Handel's pupil and amanuensis, J. Christopher Smith (17121795). These volumes are one of the four full scores known to have been written by him. One of the copies is in the Hamburg Public Library (formerly in Mr. Schoelcher's possession), another belonged to the late Mr. H. B. Leonard, and another, the “Dublin” score, is at St. Michael's College, Tenbury, formerly the property of Sir F. Gore Ouseley, 1712-1795, folio (343) Goldschmidt, £50

[This copy is believed to have been used by Handel at various performances, as is shown by the pencil-notes in the fly-leaf of each volume ; and, judging by the autograph signatures inside the covers, it appears that it was at one time in the possession of Dr. William Hayes (1707-1777).
