Vienne: Trentsensky & Vieweg [PN T. et V. 2829], [1836]. Folio. Unbound as issued. [1] (title), 2-13 pp.

A near-fine copy of the first opus of this noted Austrian pianist and composer.

"Herz became one of the most famous virtuosos and popular composers in Paris in the 1830s and 40s. He travelled widely, touring the European continent (including Russia), South America and the USA, which he crossed three times (1845-51), and wrote a memoir of his experiences... Herz was also involved in piano manufacture, establishing his own factory in 1851. His instruments were regarded by his contemporaries as equal to those of Erard and Pleyel, and one of his pianos won first prize at the Paris Exhibition of 1855."
