This must be the Sonata in Dm, Op.2 by R. Barth in Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1869), p.27. Rudolf and Richard Barth were contemporaries with similar outputs: Rudolf 29 Op. num starting in 1869, and Richard 23 Op. num from 1873 to 1915. As noted above, Richard's Op.2 is a set of Walzes in 1873. Rudolf's early works included 2 cello sonatas Opp. 2 (1869) and 7 (1883) and a Violin Sonata Op.11. His later works were mainly sacred choral. We also find several arrangements, e.g Beethoven's easy piano sonatas for vl p and vc p, and Schubert's violin Sonatinas* for vc p. By contrast, Richard's works were either Lieder e.g. Op.1 (1873) Op. 6 (1879) and Op.11 (1892), or violin works (5 sonatas).
The other Rudolf Barth was a Danish composer for the piano, published by Hansen.

- *Schubert's "sonatinas" were not so named by the composer but only by his publisher Diabelli posthumously, but ok... and I see we have one of Richard Barth's violin sonatas already - Violin Sonata, Op.20, by Richard Barth in B minor, ©1907.
