Augsburg: unknown publisher, unknown date (private publication?).
Color Scan. They may be missing from the publication itself or may have not been scanned for some reason, but only 3 pages - 2, 4 and 6- of the 2nd violin part were scanned, unfortunately. (There are quite a few other liturgical works digitally scanned by Bühler at BSB, hopefully most of them more complete, however.)

According to RISM, Bühler's output of masses seems to have been prodigious- his opus 1, 10, 16, etc. contained masses in F major also (of the thousands of manuscripts, manuscript copies and published scores by Franz Bühler at RISM - quite a collection represented in that database... 500-plus belong to manuscript works and fragments having to do with settings of the mass.)
