Misc. Comments

Am assuming there were only 8, but the cover of no.2 only listed three, of no.4 & 5 (published 1882) list only five, (not unusual!...) and perhaps there were further members of Op.42 after the first 8 ...

At LoC, the Gondoliera and Hunting Song scan-pages have each others' last pages (but the plate numbers confirm that these do belong to the Hunting Song and Gondoliera, and not to some other works entirely.)
