The Work

This is Giovanni Battista Vitali's Opus 9, a collection of trio sonatas in the Sonata da Chiesa form for 2 violins and continuo. The New Groves Dictionary of Music and Musicians lists Vitali's op. 9 as printed in Venice in 1684, while it on my copy says Amsterdam. Information on the subject is welcome.

This Edition

I have always tried to be as close to the original as possible. Editorial changes have been put above the staffs, or within parenthesis. Slashed figures in the continuo have been replaced with their flat/natural or sharp equivalents. All accidentals have been converted to modern standard.
