Interestingly, this work was copyrighted in the United States by G. Schirmer in 1870. It was published by Schott and appears in the July 1871 issue of Hofmeister's Monatsbericht. Furthermore, the plate number (20401) would place it as published in 1871.

As I see it, HMB catches what it catches (but not more)- they miss a number of French first publications of works that were only later published nearer to Austria/Germany, for example, and perhaps similarly for the USA. Don't know, just a guess, but it seems to have happened at least a few times... and even though this was a copublication with Schott which admittedly makes it confusing.- Schissel
