Publisher. Info. London: Cramer & Co. Ltd., n.d.(1895–1902). Plate 4098.
Misc. Notes Differs from even the start from the Meyer printing in some small ways (expressive indications are italicized, for example) so is not merely a reprint with new plate numbers as does sometimes occur. Dedication differs on this copy, as well (to Mlle. Belleville Oury.)

Misc. Comments
