John Cage’s 1969 collection of musical manuscripts, Notations, had been available on the web as a pdf but that is no longer the case.  As a result, we have deleted the links that at one time appeared on this page.

Your local library may be your best bet should you wish to examine this wonderful book.  The New York Public Library, for example, has three copies.   If your library doesn’t have Notations, ask about an interlibrary loan.

Visit, the official website of the John Cage Trust, for a fairly comprehensive collection of resources devoted to the life and work of John Cage.
