"All guitarists will enjoy reading Sor’s method. The forty-eight pages of text give great insight into early 19th century thought on guitar study. The reader will find humor in Sor’s ultra-pedantic attempts to clarify his ideas. [Well, I wouldn’t exactly agree in putting it that way, but never mind…! BJ] The musical section of this book contains interval studies, scales, arpeggios, studies in harmonics, and pieces. This is a fine reprint of the 1832 English translation by A. Merrick." (Soundboard, Fall/Winter 2001/2002).
"This document, most important in the history of guitar pedagogy and in the field of research, is here reproduced in a practical binding by Tecla, publishers of the same writer’s complete works for guitar. This is a treasure-house of fascinating things for anybody with more than the most superficial relationship with the guitar. For the serious player it is indispensable." (Classical Guitar, December 1996).
