Note
  • This print is a combination of "XXIV overtures" 2nd edition and "A second set of XXIV overtures" as described by Smith, page 300, no. 37; title pages are situated opposite each other; the overtures are not numbered; each part is paginated continuously by hand (nearly all with errors); overtures in "A second set" are also paginated individually.
  • Title within ruled border.
  • Dating from Smith.
  • Basso continuo part with figures.
  • Instrument headings on all parts are inconsistent throughout the set; sometimes instrument labels of individual overtures indicate alternative or additional instruments on a part; violino terzo part includes horn and/or trumpet parts for overtures to Samson, Deidamia and Atalanta.
