Misc. Comments

Also issued in 1881 arranged for piano.

Worldcat.org lists also a Gambrinus-Marsch by Josef Kellner (a.1884?), another polka op.56 by Gungl (ca.1845?), a Gambrinus-Tanze for piano by Johann Strauss, a work by a Fr. Ritter (his opus 36, "Zur Erinnerung an das Centennial-Fest in Philadelphia, 1876." and published that year by Mirsalis & Hamel- probably? not by Frédéric Louis Ritter since that latter composer was not even up to opus 15 by then.)
