Misc. Notes This file is from the MIT archive project. Cover, not scanned, might have copyright with date, so whether "n.d." is unclear. Worldcat libraries suggest that this was indeed published without explicit date and also was first published by Peters in 1926 - not 1923 (does Hofmeister list publication date of this Suite @ ONB scans?)
