Extra Information *The first Schirmer edition was in 1869 (65 pages of music). No editorial credit of Klauser is mentioned for the original Schirmer issue. The ca.1894 edition, with an editorial credit, has the "augmented by Karl Klauser" claim. It also appears to have been re-engraved (the plate number is consistent with a ca.1894 engraving as well. There is no WorldCat record of an 1875 Schirmer edition.
