Clarinet Concerto No.4 (Spohr, Louis)
Arrangements and Transcriptions
For Clarinet and Piano
Unidentified publisher, n.d.(ca.1900).
Perhaps the edition by Carl Rundnagel mentioned below, perhaps a more recent one? (Worldcat listings gives 29 pages- either for the piano score or for both piano score and clarinet part- for the Rundnagel edition- and gives Breitkopf Edition Nr. 4002, though even that is assuming this is the first printing or a reprint, or a simple remaking of it.
As noted below there are other editions also.

Sketched in 1828, orchestrated in 1829 January. (Information from Hyperion Records notes, from biography of Spohr)
Published in 1885 in a piano reduction by Carl Rundnagel (1835-1911), and later (too recently I think) by Breitkopf in a reconstruction of the orchestral score (has the manuscript been lost??) by E. Hanisch. - Schissel
According to Keith Warsop (chairman, Spohr Society of Great Britain, 2008 notes to the Hyperion Recording of Spohr Concertos 3 and 4), manuscript parts became available for hire in 1884/85, and the Spohr’s autograph score was discovered in 1960 (leading to a scholarly edition published in 1976.) The 3rd concerto is still unpublished it seems though again the material is not lost, just in manuscript (if I read Warsop's notes right.
