Dates given as 1931-2 in some sources. If published in 1931, this is ruled out, but copyright date is not on the Zimmermann first edition score ([193-] at best, plate Z.11,548, one sees in Worldcat), and until/unless one has better evidence of first publication date in HMB e.g. ... - ES

Apparently published in 1933. Intended to be published with Op.53 by Zimmermann, but the latter reneged and ultimately was published opening 1933- and later this edition was republished by Zimmermann after all (likewise the first edition of Op.53 No.1) (see Martyn, p.209 and ca.)
