"The later issues of Dreililien Verlag differ from the first issue in that the title words are all printed in black and that a publisher's catalogue appears on the final page." Website of the Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna. However, the present copy combines the two-color title of the first issue (1903) with the catalogue. The presence of op. 7, first published in 1907, in the publisher's catalogue allows for a tentative dating.

The pencilled number "3654" corresponds to the number assigned to the edition by Universal, who began distributing the work in 1912; Dreililien was purchased by Birnbach in 1934. Item #24161
