Publication of the revised edition of 1865 was announced in Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1865), p.161. Originally published in a collection by Liszt, as 2 Tanzcapricen (Hallberger, 1857.) A piano roll of what may have been the Bolero "in E") from Op.111 (apparently the record label has "Op.3 [sic]", but someone has misread "111" as "III"- this sort of Roman-numeral misreading/false interpretation in one or the other direction, leading to Beethoven's 11th sonata "Op.2" and suchlike, seems to often happen) seems to have been recorded back on Aeolian records back in the early days of acoustic (before 1930 or so - WorldCat. The key is right. BDH has it catalogued under Op.111, and Worldcat reflects this.)
