Publication history: "Supplément au Monde Musical du 15 Décembre 1903 et ne contient que la variation 10 et le final." - 4 pages. Zung of Paris published what may indeed have been the full edition, however, in 1904 (10 pages - the usual number- composition dated June 1903. Plate J. 21 B.- perhaps they were a predecessor of A. Zunz Mathot).
