Julien Musafia

I just got my hands on an extremely rare copy of Dr. Julien Musafia’s The Art of Fingering in Piano Playing, 95 pages, c. 1971 - a gold mine of information for the serious pianist, but unfortunately it’s been out of print for years. The book that I have looks like it was originally part of a college library collection - it's still got the college stamp and Dewey Decimal numbers on it. The few copies being sold on Amazon are going for anywhere from $145 to over $200.

For those who don't want to shell out that kind of dough, it looks like members are trading it on the Piano Files web site:
