It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

Revised version
Publisher. Info. Leipzig: Gustav Heinze, n.d.
Reprinted Leipzig: Edition Peters, n.d. Plate 7311.
Copyright
Misc. Notes The title page reference to Robert Schumann is due to the fact that Schumann's arrangement used Dotzauer's edition as its source. Stade's revised arrangement incorporated features from the Dotzauer and Grützmacher editions, while the original version is mainly based on Norblin's edition from ca.1824.
