Abstract

This translation is based on an amended typescript in the New York Public Library, Oster Collection, File 31, items 281±53, transcribed here on pp. 131±231. Details of the organisation of this document, and of the nature of the changes made by Schenker to the original typescript, are provided in my introductory essay and in the preface and notes to the transcription. For passages in which Schenker's handwriting has been deemed illegible, I have adopted the following procedures: · · · Where the sense of a phrase or sentence with handwritten corrections can plausibly be determined from what is legible, any words that are needed to complete the sense are enclosed in square brackets. Where the meaning of a word or short phrase cannot be determined, a gap is indicated by an ellipsis [. . .]. Where the meaning of an entire sentence cannot be determined with confidence, the translation is based on the original typescript and a note indicating this is provided. In revising the typescript, Schenker at times cancelled sentences and even whole paragraphs, sometimes by putting a cross over the material to be deleted, sometimes merely by drawing a faint line across the page.
