Even so, it is a painstaking job, requiring great dedication by the researcher - many hours can be spent, poring page by page over microfilms of barely-legible ancient newspapers, without finding a single new study. However, to the true archaeologist, this just increases the pleasure, when one does come across some new studies. When asked what he could see, on first entering Tutankhamen's tomb, Howard Carter is reputed to have replied "Wonderful things!". Harold is very much the Howard Carter of the study world, and is surely entitled to use the same words about many of his finds?
In the latest EG, Harold describes some of his recent researches, in the Berlin newspaper Vossische Zeitung 1918-34, which he recently discovered was available online. This yielded about 15 studies that were new to him, including a number by a composer whose name is new to me, W Leick. Here is a nice little example - a simple enough study, but the sort of miniature that I like. I will not insult your intelligence by giving the solution:
