Bonn: N. Simrock [PN] 2791, [1830]. Folio. Disbound. [1] (title), 2-17, [i] ("Catalogue des Oeuvres de Henri Herz publiés par Nicolas Simrock à Bonn sur le Rhin").

Slightly worn and soiled.

An Austrian pianist, composer and teacher active in France, "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. His compositions consist largely of variations and fantasies on themes by other composers, but they also include eight piano concertos, various dances, salon pieces and exercises, amounting to some 225 works with opus numbers, and the same number again without."
