Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel [PNs 7834, 7835, 7836], [ca. 1872]. Octavo. Original publisher's dark pink printed boards. No. 1: 1f. (title), 39, [i] (blank) pp. No. 2: 1f. (title), 36 pp. Title lithographed, music engraved.

Publisher's catalogue with prices in both Reichsthaler and Neugroschen to verso of lower board.

Binding worn, spine reinforced with old tape; lower wrapper lacking. Title browned and quite brittle, edges chipped; browned throughout; some leaves frayed at edges with slight loss to corners; one leaf detached; tear to final page; small publisher's handstamp to lower right corner of both titles.

Later edition, a Titelauflage printed from plates of the first edition; title page differs only by the added price in Marks). Not in Hofmann, McCorkle, or Hoboken.

The publisher's catalogue lists works published up to 1865 (Niels W. Gade's Seventh Symphony, op. 45, and Wilhelm Taubert's overture Der Sturm, op. 134). The prices in Reichsthaler only also point to a date before 1871. Apparently, the catalogue was added without alterations although it was no longer current. Mark currency was introduced in 1872.
