Well, more precisely, original manuscripts of classical music by Bach Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Debussy, Strauss, Bartok and Schoenberg, the collection of "Robert Owen Lehman, a member of the famed Lehman banking family. He has collected original music manuscripts for decades, and he keeps many of them on deposit at the Morgan Library. Now he's looking to sell this collection."

Major Trove Of Classical Music Manuscripts For Sale

"Lehman has two conditions: The collection cannot be broken up, and it must remain on display in a public institution." "Lehman hasn't announced anything, but a letter circulated to a group of wealthy New Yorkers suggests that he may use money from selling these music manuscripts to set up an organization dedicated to music education and performance."

I hope he can fulfill his conditions.
