Bach gave two handwritten manuscript books to his wife Anna Madgdalena. By its binding covered with parchment and gilded on slice, the second is particularly valuable. In this small collection (Büchlein) dated 1725, he noted a large number of pieces of his own pen, or that of other composers, intended for the keyboard and in all genres. Listed every year in the list of best-selling titles in our catalog, the Urtext edition published by Henle renders, in a remarkable way by hand and in the most faithful manner, the entirety of this manuscript, with the exception of movements extracted from the "French Suites" (HN71) and "Partitas" (HN28) also in the Notenbüchlein, which they, as everyone knows, are elsewhere in our catalog.
