The original 2 volumes are completely messed up. Vol.1 contains the Prologue of Lucrezia Borgia, additional (brass and percussion) scores for the whole opera and Finale I of Chi dura vince by Luigi Ricci. Vol.2 contains acts I and II of Lucrezia Borgia and additional score for the chorus from act I (Qui che fai? — Non far motto). The order of the pieces in vol.2 is chaotic. In the #587618 file they are reordered properly; the finale of Ci dura vince is moved to that opera page (#587619).
The opening piece of act I (cavatina of the Duke with Rustighello and chorus) is missing. Both versions of the finale are present, but Gennaro's arioso (in the so-called 'new' finale) is cut significantly. The manuscript (or its parts) was used for a 'Turkish' performance of the opera (titled Dalinda; Paris 1840?): the names and text are changed in some pieces (Acmet = Duca, Dalinda = Lucrezia etc.).
