I like Szymanowski's scores :) In the 2nd SYMPHONY he writes for instance "dolce" for timpani- that's cute :P

It's worth mentioning here the fair copy that Fanny Hensel made of 'Das Jahr' on coloured paper and illustrated with water-colours by her husband. I can't show you an example here but it has now been published in facsimile so you may well come across it.

With his toes, that's right.

The only well-preserved manuscript page of Janacekīs Jenufa, exhibited in Brnoīs Janacek Museum.

Beautiful, because of its expressive, painterly effects & the traces of the artistīs struggling, creative process, IMO.
But a tough one for those that had to decipher its details.

Not one of the best sheets to look at; one might think they don't want to share it... :(, but the most interesting and attractive score I've seen close-up is Debussy's La Mer at the Sibley Music Library/Eastman School.  As they say:  "One of only three extant manuscript sources of this celebrated orchestral composition (1905), this is a particelle, or short score ─ a detailed sketch or draft, in condensed form, with parts for closely related instruments appearing on single staves. This magnificent manuscript is the Sibley Music Library's single most celebrated holding. The composer's painstakingly fine penmanship, and the multiplicity of colored pencils, never fail to draw admiring comment."

A page of the Kyrie from La Messe de Nostre Dame by Guillaume de Machaut



I'm a sucker for Machaut.  This score is beautiful!
