Primary sources

  • Thiele I, p. 179 (dates the beginning of the model to the late summer of 1802 without giving his sources for this date).
  • An entry in the diary of Friederike Brun of 27.11.1802 shows that the model was quite advanced by this date. The passage is quoted in Doris and Peter Walser-Wilhelm: Bonstettiana. Briefkorrespondanzen Karl Viktor von Bonstettens und seines Kreises, G√∂ttingen 2002, Vol. IX/I, p. 411.
