[Op. 50]. Das Paradies und die Peri. Dichtung aus Lalla Rookh von Th. Moore für Solostimmen, Chor und Orchester... Klavierauszug. Op. 50... Pr. 5 Thlr. [Piano-vocal score]

Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel [PN 7069], [ca. 1844]. Folio. Quarter mid-brown cloth with paper boards with octagonal paper label titled in manuscript to upper. 1f. (title), [1]-4 (text), 3-133, [i] (blank) pp. Title lithographed, text typeset, music engraved.

Handstamp "T. J. Roothaan & Co Muzijkhandel en biblioteek Amsterdam" to foot of title. With rhymed inscription in black ink to head of verso of title: "Der Tandler hatte kein Interessanteres / Drum schick ich dieses und kein Anderes! Haag, im April 1932."

Binding quite worn; spine frayed and partially lacking; last line of manuscript text to label crudely erased. Minor staining and foxing, most noticeable to first leaves. With pencil markings to alto staves in part 3 (pp. 77-83).

First Edition, variant issue, distinguished by differently typeset text. Hofmann p. 115. McCorkle pp. 223-24. Hoboken 15, 93 (with original wrappers). The full score of the work was not published until 1845.

The author of the inscription is unknown; the use of the word "Tandler" suggests that he is from either Austria or Bavaria.

The text of the oratorio was translated from the English original by Emil Flechsig (1808-1878); Schumann made significant alterations. Item #24913
