Misc. Comments

Op.160 assigned in France to a Schonenberger publication of 1848 called 3 Polkas nouvelles des salons pour piano containing "La créole", "La bayadère" and "L'amazone". Am assuming tentatively that these are the same works with different headings, but to be sure one needs to see the Schonenberger publication (@ BNF for example- at least that is not a lost score!) to compare to the score we have here.
