Editor First edition
Publisher. Info. Wiesbaden: R. Bechtold & Comp., 1911.
Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Hrm. Looks like manuscript, but - maybe not, after all. Rather like some orchestral manuscripts (many autographs) in that not all the instruments are introduced from-the-start but rather - well- when they're introduced.
