Arranger Richard Wagner (1813-1883), piano reduction. 4ème édition.
Publisher. Info. Paris: Alexandre Grus, n.d.(ca.1841–1883).

Misc. Notes Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 1e série, 30e année (44e de la collection), Nº 28, 10 Juillet 1841, p.347, r.254. - gives the publisher of the first edition of what seems to be this vocal score as M. Schlesinger. From the address on the score, betw. 1840 & 1883; after 1841 (Schlesinger 1st ed). 4th edition, so a revision of the original Schlesinger score (if that is accurate and honest labeling) assuming the two are related (which seems sensible.)
