Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel [PN 6016], [ca. 1863-1871]. Folio. Unbound. 1f. (title), 3-20, [i] (publisher's catalogue "Publications nouvelles pour le piano de Breitkopf & Härtel à Leipzig) pp. Title lithographed, music lithographically transferred and printed within decorative green border.

Moderately worn, soiled, foxed and browned; some offsetting; outer bifolium detached; stains to final two leaves; publisher's oval handstamp to lower right corner of title.
