Public Domain [tag/del]

Misc. Notes:

Includes pencil markings and several leaves of handwritten music bound in. Hrm. Did Falter & Sohn use edition nos. much? Yes, plate 83 wouldn't fit the plate table we have at Falter & Sohn - if we assume that Falter, and Falter & Sohn, used consecutive/continuous plates.

Instrumentation from 1830 abschrift @ RISM. The work exists in both a 3 and a 4 act version (and was also produced in a combined version (à la Boris Godunov?)) judging again from RISM entries.
