This project would not have been possible without the help and support of the British Academy, whose research grant in 1989 enabled me to make the first of my research trips to examine manuscripts and printed editions; of my colleagues at the three institutions at which I've worked, Goldsmiths' College, the Britten-Pears Library and the Royal College of Music, from whom I learned a great deal; of many friends in the International Association of Music Librarians; and of many colleagues around the world, and in particular Thomas Aigner (Musiksammlung, Wienbibliothek), Professor Ian Bent, Michael Bosworth (Hanoi), Elisabeth Briefer (Abteilung Wissenschaftliche Information, Österreichische Nationalbibliothek), Dr Avior Byron, Daniel Dorff (Theodore Presser Company), Dr. Gila Flam (Music and Sound Archives, The Jewish National and University Library), Angelika Glatz (Universal Edition), Rik Henriks (Nederlands Muziek Instituut), Dr Kathryn James (Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University), Gilbert Kaplan, Dr Bob Kosovsky (The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts), Ronald Kornfeil (Universal Edition), Dr Reinhold Kubik (Internationale Gustav Mahler Gesellschaft); Henry-Louis de La Grange; Dr Thomas Leibnitz (Musiksammlung, Oesterreichische Nationalbibliothek), Knud Martner (Copenhagen), Jerry McBride (Music Library & Archive of Recorded Sound, Stanford University), Dr Simon McGuire (Sotheby's, London),   Dr Donald Mitchell, Mdme Alena Parthonnaud (Médiathèque Musicale Mahler), Professor Robert Pascall (Bangor University), Lisa Philpott (Music Library, University of Western Ontario), Dr Alice Prohaska (University Library, Yale University), Pablo Sanchez-Quinteiro (Spanish Mahler Society), Professor Edward Reilly (†Vassar College); Dr Rupert Ridgewell (British Library), Karen Robson (Hartley Library, University of Southampton), Professor Nigel Simeone (University of Sheffield), Jasmine Simeone, Dr Renate Stark-Voit (Vienna), Robert Threlfall, Rigby Turner (formerly Pierpont Morgan Library), Professor John Tyrrell (Cardiff University), Emily Worthington (Royal College of Music), Timothy Young (Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University), Dr Frits Zwart (Nederlands Muziek Instituut); and last, but certainly not least, Chris Banks (Library and Historic Collections, University of Aberdeen), my companion on this long research trip, without whom it would certainly have been less fun.
