As with Raff's Op.2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, and 14 the second versions actually represent new compositions ("Nouvelles Edition, entièrement transformée" as listed in Hofmeister's catalog).

Publication of the 1842 version of Op.3 was first announced in Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1844), p.86 (along with Opp.2 and 4).
