Talk:Nonet, Op.31 (Spohr, Louis)

Publication date

At a guess: sometimes Sibley Library approximates; the best information they have may read "183-" (1830s), say, and their database will only allow, I think, them to enter 1830 for that; at a guess, too, the information they have on this particular score might have read "18--", 1800s, and so they entered 1800. Bad pre-planning. I am probably mistaken, though it would make some sense if so... Eric 04:21, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

The plate number on this issue is a bit confusing as well. Steiner & Co.'s usual prefix was "S.u.C:". This prefix is S. et C. I've not encountered any Simrock original issues which employ a prefix. They typically have just the number. If this is an actual Simrock original issue, which seems possible as the 2700 is listed on the title page also, this particular set of parts was most likely printed in the 1830s, going by Simrock's plate numbers (which are pretty reliable for dating). Sibley's dating is sometimes very generalized, as you mention. Carolus 05:37, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Actually, this is not a Simrock reissue, but a resale sticker put by Simrock on the Steiner-Haslinger print, obliterating "chez Tobie Haslinger". Just note the slightly off-center position and the rectangular border around the name Simrock. Re: Publication date: The date in the Sibley database is "18--" in the full entry, only in the catalog list is this then transformed into "1800"--Kalliwoda 22:07, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
