Hi! This message is sent to Piano Forum Administrators.
I have an Edition of Chopin 12 etudes op 10 par Alfred Cortot, with a lot of exercises from Cortot himself aiming to attain the best way to master those Études.
This  edition was published by Editions Maurice Senart, Paris, in 1915.
It`s a very usefull work to all those who try to play these Etudes.
I transcribe here, in French - since I`m not an English Native but a portuguese one to translate from French to Englise is not easy for me... - what Cortot says about this:
" La loi essentielle de cette methode est de travailler non pas le passage difficile mais la difficulté contenue dans ce passage en lui restituant son caractère élémentaire".
As this edition is 100 years old the copyright (1915) may be prescribed, I think.
If prescribed will you wish I send it to pianoforum by mail in order that the members of the forum could acess to it? Without any charge to you, of course...
Best wishes
Rui
PS - I must apologize my uggly English...

Hello, I cannot speak for the members of Pianostreet. But this is available on IMSLP free of charge, a website dedicated to providing classical literature that's out of publishing laws.

Do you speak french too? As you say transcribing from French to English is difficult, I believe there is an English version knocking around too. I think I have it actually.

But, since it`s avalaible charge free...

You can probably find anything you're thinking of on here - http://imslp.org/

Quality of scans are not really monitored, so if your'e taking any pieces or literature seriously, you're still probably better off buying a properly published copy, but IMSLP can do in the short term if you want some music quickly.
