Sonata for a 2-manual/4-stop keyboard. (Hrm, do we have a out-of-copyright version of the whole sonata that might be scanned? It's not in the Farrenc edition, is it - hrm.)
Will appear in the CPE Bach critical edition in "Sonatas from Manuscript Sources", III (not yet available). The sonata was first published as a whole in 1986, I think, but the variations may have been published earlier; will have to check, I don't know. (Erm- what -is- the source of this typeset -- as usual?)
