Gregg Press reprint of Volumes 3 and 6 of the original 1859 German Handel Society edition edited by Friedrich Chrysander.

"Chrysander was one of the pioneers of 19th-century German musicology... In 1853 he published essays on folksong and oratorio, on the strength of which he was awarded a doctorate by Rostock University on 19 April 1855. By then he was already deeply interested in the study of Handel and had begun collecting material for a biography of the composer, the first volume of which appeared in 1858. The second followed in 1860 and part of the third in 1867; the work was never finished." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online.
