Contemporary owner's signature "Louise Braune." in ink to lower right corner of title.

The collection includes six pieces. The designation "Erstes Heft" (volume 1) implies that a continuation was planned but there were no further volumes. Hofmann (pp. 127 and 131) suggests that the Skizzen für den Pedal-Flügel op. 58 were originally planned as the second volume of op. 56; they were, however, published by Breitkopf & Härtel.
