HMB Lists a 2-volume collection Salon-Albums for piano solo: Vols 1-5 and , which extended to 14 volumes by 1876. Nearly 20 years later, in 1893, new violin volumes were issued , along with a piano 4-hand version and finally a "New Salon Album" for piano solo was published in 1900.
Many other publishers issued series with the same title, starting with Glöggl of Vienna in 1851. Favorite instruments were piano and zither, but many other instruments were catered for by Schmidt of Heilbronn from 1880.
Re attribution of revised ed: Since the arr of Field's Nocturne in E appears in Hermann's selected Field Nocturnes, we can assume that the whole collection is by Hermann.
