I have a piece here that uses upside-down up-bows to indicate down-bow, which I have never seen before. Since I know other editions of the same opus, I know that they have the meaning of a normal down-bow. Does anyone know anything about this? Yesterday I confused this example with the post about Upside-down down-bows, but here it obviously is a different matter. Does it have to to with the engraving technique of a certain time or area, since this print is from Russia as stated below?
