Misc. Comments

Re "21" in the above study score :"21" is from my own very-late-1940s-or-even-later reprint copy, front cover and from back cover, list of study scores with edition numbers (which contains works not composed, let alone published, in 1939, e.g. Roger Sessions' symphony no.2 of 1944-6 published in 1949.--E.S.)
