Publisher. Info. Leipzig: C.F.W. Siegel
Co-issue - Leipzig: C.F. Peters, n.d.[1874]. Plate 5397.
Misc. Notes Peters/Siegel may have also released a full score with plate 5394 (this is in Zurich Library's catalog, though they date it to the 1910s and have the publisher as "Kistner & Siegel" - it may be a Kistner/Siegel reprint of a Peters 1874 full score with this plate? The proximity of number seems very close, and it was a co-issue with Siegel in the first place.)
