Engraver Leipzig: C.G. Röder.
Publisher. Info. Leipzig: C.F. Peters, n.d.(ca.1897?). Plate 8393.
Copyright
Misc. Notes Stern did compile a reduction (124 pp. according to the information on the copy @ Coburg University Library), published in 1868 (Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1868), p.214, plate 4672) for Peters. It is wholly possible he did another or that this one is a reprint (with different plate), though; his involvement with both Peters and Beethoven's music seems at a quick glance seems to have been substantial?
