Publisher. Info. London: Augener Ltd., No.6151b, n.d.[1881]. Plates 5872, 5873, 5949, 5950,
5970, 5976, 5999, 6000, 6003, 6006, 6024, 6027.
Misc. Notes Individual plate nos. for each piece. NB this is edition with English fingering; No.6151a also listed with Continental fingering. From uploader's collection BW with colour cover.
Plate numbers correlate with dates of first edition (for first ten, which are listed in Hofmeister in 1881, Augener)- perhaps Thümer "edited" a collection but not the individual scores?...- Schissel (poss. this is from 1885? An 1885 ad- under "Mimosen" - does give "En forme d'Etudes", a suffix that doesn't seem to be found on the first edition.)
