Misc. Notes This file is based on high-resolution images obtained from the source using a method explained on this page. (#107650). Per cover page: "Seconde Edition nouvelle et corrigée." Plate number of 482 matches 1842 for Schuberth so the second edition (issue before 1853 one would suppose) must have used corrected first edition plates.

Misc. Notes From the Ruth Dana Collection of Liszt Editions.
Per cover page: "Seconde edition nouvelle et corrigée." Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1853), p.464 confirms second edition but whether the publisher meant second edition of S.393/2 or that version S.393/2 is the second edition of S.393 is not clear. The issue is further muddied since it appears a second edition of S.393/1 was published.
