“It is the aim of these exercises to impart velocity, strength and evenness of touch to the fingers. Anyone having the patience to take up six or eight numbers daily and practice them from ten to fifteen minutes will soon be convinced of their usefulness.” 31 pages of forty-six exercises and Twenty –five studies for Left Hand Alone. An excellent source of material to hone the left hand into a fluid and technically proficient component of your artistry. Combine this with the Hanon “Virtuoso Pianist” and you should notice considerable improvement and keep your skills sharp. 31 pages, copyright 1914 by G. Schirmer, Inc. This book has the older Schirmer’s Library logo, Vol 1031 Berens Op.89. The cover has a bit of age but looks very nice. Berens is written in the top left corner of the cover and there are some “Property of Sam Saxe” hand stamps within the book and on the back cover. No stamps on the cover, a very small amount of pencil notations of the first exercise. Purchase date of 6-22-38 written on the top left corner of the first page in pencil. Otherwise excellent condition, all pages firm in the book, no tears, one small bump on back cover. Teachers, Students, professionals who want to stay on their game. This is for you. Make that left hand dazzle.

If you prefer I can ship first class, or any other method you select at checkout. Insurance can be provided at you expense if you desire. Shipping costs of 3 dollars per item are added to your purchase price. If you purchase multiple items I will waive 1 shipping fee for every three items purchased. I regret that I recently had to raise my shipping fee, due to moving much farther from the local post office, but I still try to get it into the post office the next day.
Shipping fees are a pain, but it requires a good deal more time than you might expect, not to mention envelopes, sleeves, taping and cutting cardboard to keep your purchase safe through transport. I recycle cardboard so I have to cut it by hand which is laborious but I like the stiffness of cardboard boxes as opposed to the flimsy stuff you might usually see.
You may also pay by personal check (will hold merchandise until check has cleared my account, approx 1 wk after receipt) or money order (ships in 1-3 days). Any taxes will be added to your purchase price. I must receive payment within 2 weeks or the transaction may be cancelled.
