filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning. I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

The Hamelle edition of this work is not the first edition. It came out first from Fauré's new publisher, Metzler of London, and then only a few months later from Hamelle. (Nectoux, p.56.) (1896, not 1894.) Nectoux conjectures it may have been "sketched, if not actually written out", as early as 1886, but writes that little is known [with any certainty] of it.
