(C. Ad. Lorenz)
Contrast that with Lorenz's Op.25 that was published by Schlesinger in 1884 (only one year later) in which is found the following:
C. Ad. Lorenz, Op.25.
Hofmeister's Musikalisch-literarischer Monatsbericht lists Streiche (pranks/tricks) 1 and 2 as being Opp.1 and 2 by Moritz ( ) and lists the publication of the fifth prank as being Moritz's Op.11 ( .
Evidently, Lorenz was having his own joke by having the cartoon character Moritz listed as the composer.
Lorenz had had an earlier Op.7 published in 1868, 3 piano pieces Wie es euch gefällt book 1.
