The Internationalen Guitarristen Verbands in Munich published a journal from 1900 to 1931. It was known for the first few issues just as “Mitteilungen des Internationalen Guitarristen–Verbands (e.V.)” then as “Der Guitarrefreund” and later as “Der Gitarrefreund.”

Mitteilungen der Freien Vereinigung zur Förderung guter Guitaremusik (e. V.)

The journal “Mitteilungen der Freien Vereinigung zur Förderung guter Guitaremusik (e. V.)” (known in English as the “Free Society for the promotion of good guitar-music”) was one of the early, informative journals on the guitar published in Augsburg, Germany from 1904 to 1909. In January 1909 the Augsburg society joined with the Munich Gitarristischen Vereinigung and stopped publication of their own journal.

Giulianiad

The Giulianiad was published in London from January 1833 through possibly July 1835. Its editor was not listed in any of the journals but it is fairly well accepted that Ferdinand Pelzer was very involved in the work. There are only two known locations of complete issues of the journal: The British Library and the Appleby Collection at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. There are a number of individual issues in other collections and libraries. (more…)
