Misc. Notes scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.
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 to small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite.

Misc. Comments

Signed Paris, the 6th July. "Brown has 1837, but many documents note that Chopin was not in Paris in July except in 1832, 1834, 1838, 1840, 1847 et 1849" ("and possibly also in 1833 and 1836") - so much more likely to have been composed in one of those years, based on what little evidence is on the score, than in a year in which he was not in Paris at all on the specified date. (See BNF information.) -- this claim is however contradicted by NIFC which claims he was in Paris -until 10 July- 1837 (and then travelled to London.) Hrm. ... curious. - ES (BNF is right that 1837 remains a guess, but NIFC is probably right that Chopin was, contrary to BNF, in London in July, just not in all of July.)
