Navigation etc. estimates 1934 for date of publication, though still PD-US as the date is (apparently...?) not given on the score.

For composition date (1905), see the score manuscript sample here.

Also, this is by Rudolph Bergh (perhaps no middle name), not Ludvig Rudolph Sophus Bergh (1824-1909), who I think was his father or somesuch, perhaps.- Schissel
