"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 Schónberg Center, Vienna. The presence of op. 7 (first published in 1907) in the publisher's catalogue allows for dating the present copy to after that year.

The pencilled number "3655" corresponds to the number assigned to the edition by Universal; Dreililien was purchased by Birnbach in 1934.

The text of the song, "Waldsonne," is by Johannes Schlaf. Item #24177
