Yesterday, in one of my typical Sunday Charity & Antique shop-hunts around North London (Oxfam Books and Music Crouch End to be precise) I found a real gem: Dont, 24 Exercises Op.37 -well known and useful studies preparatory for Kreutzer and Rode. It wasn’t a normal edition for solo violin, it was a piano accompaniment I had never heard of! After some googling nothing came up so it seems to be quite an unique copy.
I leave here three photos, keep connected because tonight I’ll scan the whole book for you all to download for free!
Finally, here it is, the whole book ready to download!

Also, the amazing Violin and Yoga teacher Rob Diggins has uploaded tutorials for numbers 1 to 7:
