SEVCIK 40 BOWING VARIATIONS
Does anyone know where/how to find either a first edition or facsimile of the autograph of this work:
Otakar Sevcik 40 bowing variations, opus 3.
A team of cellists are looking into this work in depth and all we have is a cello edition.
Please add a title to your thread so that others can reply.

Thank you Gordon, but your suggestion on IMSLP is not a facsimile of the autograph. It is an edition.
OK, as long as you know that a facsimile is not a simple photocopy - it is a high quality reproduction (I speak with some experience of ancient Greek papyrology). The question then is, what proportion of old texts have ever had true facsimiles made of them, and how much do they cost?
I'm not sure the comments have understood the OP request to see the first edition or original manuscript. Looking at original versions/early editions of etudes is a really interesting activity into seeing performing practices and also the priorities in string teaching at that time. I've found looking at early editions of Kreutzer and Fiorillo recently to be most illuminating (Kreutzer 1 for instance is hardly recognisable in the first edition compared to the editions we are all used to).
James intriguing comment about Kreutzer#1, would you care to say a bit more on this?
