        Really like this edition of a wonder set of suites; well set out on the page with a little about the suites at the start of the book. Only reason why 5 stars not awarded is some of the stems on semi-quavers are a bit close together so look a bit smudged but this doesn't affect the reading of the piece and could be my edition only. Brilliant value for money as will be spending a good amount of time analyzing it!
