EXTRACT FROM PREFACE. “A great number of Studies for the Pianoforte already exist, solely intended to form the mechanism of the fingers. “In writing a series of short characteristic pieces, I have aimed at a totally different object.

“I wish to habituate both Students and Amateurs to execute a piece with the expression, grace, elegance, or energy required by the peculiar character of the composition ; more particularly have I endeavoured to awaken in them a feeling for Musical Rhythm, and a desire for the most exact and complete interpretation of the Author's intentions.
