"From the Preface: - The Pianists' Handbook is intended to supersede such a method with all its obvious disadvantages.
It is not meant as a text-book for Theory classes, but strictly as its title shows - a "Theoretic Companion to Practice" As in the Introduction to the Study of Theory, some facts and rules have been stated very generally and with due regard to the abilities and necessities of the ordinary Pianoforte student at the stage before the systematic study of Theory has been brought to bear upon practice."
