Misc. Notes:

Page 5 of Caprice No.3 is missing. Oh. It seems to have been replaced by a page from another Caprice. I see. We don't know who scanned this, unfortunately. We can try to find another source, though...
File #06471 with replacement for incorrect page 5 in the third caprice. No other changes to original file.
