Gaieté de coeur, Op.24 (Smith, Sydney)
Sydney: W.H. Paling & Co., n.d.(1880s?).
This file has sufficient differences from the one below to be considered a different edition - an accentuation marking in a different place here or different language there, etc., ...- it is no mere reprint.
The Star Folio of Pianoforte Music, a Selection of the Most Celebrated Compositions.
Dundee: Methven Simpson, Ltd. n.d.(ca.1900). Plate P. 986.
Publisher information deduced from plate number + Worldcat. The original 1862 printing of the score probably had different plate numbers (I think- unless in fact it was part of this publication?)
New Orleans: Philip Werlein, 1884.
From the cover, part of a series of Smith waltzes published by Werlein (I expect the rest are partially available at LoC in this and other forms.) Very large filesize?...

Maylath and Theophil arrangements are also available at the Library of Congress - perhaps originally scanned by them or by Duke University (whose collections they mirror)? Original scanner therefore ambiguous, but available as PDF at Sydney Smith Archive, as large-density TIFF files at LoCongress, anycase. However, as sometimes at LoC, attribution odd - e.g. the Maylath arrangement attributed to Maylath as a composition of his at memory.loc.gov (searching under Smith will not turn it up.) Theophil’s simplified version of this D♭ major waltz is in C major, while Maylath’s is in G major.
