This volume is extremely damaged and fragile. Parts of title pages have been torn out.
Various inscriptions on some of the scores, most cannot be read. The legible ones are: 'Louisa Fyle?', 'N.E. Tait from Ma...', 'Marian?', 'Anne Charlotte Sharp...Hunter St. Sydney', 'Miss A.C. Sharp, 81 Hunter St Sydney', 'Mrs Fyle?'.
10 of the scores have numbering on them. They appear to be the ones that belong to Anne Charlotte Sharp. The numbering includes the manuscript. We have numbers 4,5,6,10,16,18,22,24,25 and 168.
