Second edition. WeV S.10. Jähns 260. Hoboken 15, 347. Fuld p. 305 (issue e; subtitle, however, is in French, not English, suggesting a possible bibliographical error). One of six early issues by Schlesinger, the priority among which has not been established. The present issue is printed from plates different from those used in issue b; it could therefore be described as a separate edition. The styles of engraving suggest that b precedes e.
One of Weber's best-known composition for piano, written in 1821. Item #24747
