A priceless manuscript at a Polish library shows how Mozart wrote his Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat Major - in neat, small notes with no corrections.
More about that manuscript and the dispute surrounding it, in this article from the Shanghai Daily.
The Daily is absolutely correct that music manuscripts, visually, vary widely from composer to composer, which you can confirm by browsing the Juilliard Manuscript Archive, with selections from a scrawling Puccini to a methodical Stravinsky.
