depending, maybe this should go in the "Pleyel, Camille/Collections" subsection?... (of course, he may have published more than one Mélange d'airs, making things more complicated and the title ambiguous...) - Schissel
BNF Gallica has what are probably the first editions of the first three of these, published by J. (Ignaz, I presume) Pleyel, scanned (e.g. "
Mélange (Premier) d'airs tirés des opéras de Rossini, arrangés pour le piano-forte") (Pleyel plates (cotages) 1513, 1516, 1568). According to Bibliographie de la France, the first two, anyway, were published in 1820. See e.g. Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France
1e série, 9e année, 23e de la collection, Nº 31, 29 Juillet 1820, page 419, registration 361. (1st mélange).
There's also a 4th? Mélange, "Melange on favourite Airs from Meyerbeer's opera, " II Crociato," for the Pianoforte." by Pleyel, published ca.1825. A Mélange sur les airs de Don Juan, his Op.23, was published in 1821 (along with his Op.22, a caprice, both again by Pleyel. BdlF 1821, p.94.)
