Lattice of Novaro's 23 tone scale as found in his 27-29 editions

It is interesting that the diamond or diamond-like structures would occur from different people without any contact. While Harry Partch gave us his 11 limit diamond in 1927, here Novaro provided us with his own 9 limit one. It is also worth noting that both of them inserted extra tones near the 1/1 to fill in the gap that is a common feature of diamonds and lambdomas in general.
