||London: Augener Ltd., No.6151b, n.d.. Plates 5872, 5873, 5949, 5950,|
5970, 5976, 5999, 6000, 6003, 6006, 6024, 6027.
||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.)
