Misc. Comments

"componirt und mit genauem Fingersatz bezeichnet von Hermann Berens".

Capitalization as in HMB. (Effectively sonatinas, indeed, the Lyon & Healy edition of no.4 is titled Sonatine - haven't seen the Cranz original to determine whether or not it was (and all Worldcat gives is the above line, which, translated, is also in the Lyon & Healy version), and it's possible too that this only applies to no.4.)
