Wien: Tobias Haslinger [T.H. 5611... (5612)], [ca. 1831]. Quarto. Pianoforte part stapled, other parts unbound. Pianoforte: [1] (title), 2-37, [ii] (publisher's catalogue), [i] (blank) pp.; Violino: 8 pp.; Viola: 7, [i] (blank) pp.; Violoncello: 7, [i] (blank) pp.; Contrabasso: 5, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved.

Arranged by the composer.

The title carries the plate number 5612, which appears in all parts except the Pianoforte, always in parentheses. The Pianoforte part is taken from the original version and retains the plate number "T.H. 5611" from that publication. The cue notes in the Pianoforte part are unchanged and occasionally refer to instruments not part of the present arrangement (flute, clarinet, and trumpet).

The first page of the publisher's catalogue advertises Hummel's "neueste Compositionen" (opp. 114-18) and his piano method, Ausführliche theoretisch-practische Anweisung zum Fortepiano-Spiel (1828); the second is the backlist of Haslinger's earlier Hummel editions.

Occasional fingering in pencil to Pianoforte part.

Very slightly worn; blank upper margin slightly trimmed. A very clean and attractive copy overall.

First Edition of this arrangement, published at the same time as the original. Zimmerschied p. 172 (no date). Weinmann: Senefelder-Steiner-Haslinger 2, p. 29 (no date). WorldCat (3 copies, all in North America, at the University of Illinois, Indiana University, and the University of Western Ontario.

The present edition, like that of the original septet, is part of a series of works by Hummel (opp. 114-18) that Haslinger published, in a multitude of arrangements, under the consecutive plate numbers 5611-5658 (see Weinmann, op. cit., pp. 29-30). Item #25719
