Misc. Notes [From JDH: The file is defective--e.g., Viola 1 is missing pages 4 and 5!] While the 1848 date is backed up by the Hofmeister Monatsbericht and the plate number table, the engraving looks like it could easily have been done in the 1860s or even '70s.
This file is part of the Merton-Ourtext Project.
The pages have been arranged 2-up in imposition (booklet) order for duplex printing on A3 paper and require an A3 printer. Alternatively, this work can be mail-ordered from Ourtext's website. Ourtext prints have undergone editing, and legibility and accuracy can be expected to be superior to Merton archive files displayed here. A comparison with the Goethe University-uploaded first edition parts shows that these are, nonetheless, the first edition 1848 parts.
