Regarding "Thayer" (rather than Ayer) see American Publishers' Circular and Literary Gazette Volume III No. VIII February 21 1857 issue page 118, and New York Weekly Review (Musical Review and Gazette) Volume 8, February 21 1857 issue, page 57. (Neither mentions Ayer but both attribute a work of the same name- 2 weeks after this work was received at the Library of Congress so perhaps/probably the same work - to Thayer; one suspects a typo somewhere- perhaps - this is pure conjecture - their copies did have Thayer and in the two weeks between February 7 and February 21 (!) Ditson had changed the name on the title page (fixing an error or creating one)).
