Misc. Notes 1877/p.318 (HMB) here is a guess among several choices, but the Volksausgabe series lasted from 1876 to 1913, the plate is small (212), and the guess "looks" right? (1880/p.242 is another possibility.) Scanner link is also a (later-supplied) guess. (Archive.org plumps for 1880 publishing date).

Misc. Comments

Worldcat lists at least 3 complete(ish?) recordings of the opera- on Sony (1991), on Nuova Era (1965 performance, distributed 1989), and one from Polskie Radio (2008) (with limited distribution, perhaps). Timings of the first two, at least, seem to be about the same.
