Editor First edition probably
Publisher. Info. London: Mori & Lavenu, n.d.[1836]. Plate 3740.
Co-published with Paris: Maurice Schlesinger, n.d.
Misc. Notes Plate is 3740, though on most pages looks like a 1 with a little dash. See p.6 where the plate is clearest. Mori & Lavenu was taken over and its name changed in 1839, apparently; therefore (see below) this edition came out between 1836 and 1839. In fact it was released in 1836 (like the Purday edition), and no later than May or so: see Musical World, May 20 1836, p.164.

  • Our only work by Adam with an opus number, but according to HMB, hardly the only such work by him. (Though he seems to have been past op.100 by 1836, if that's the same A. Adam- could be Josef August Adam. This work, however, is definitely by Adolphe Adam, see cover page :) )
