Colour scan with digital watermark . If evidence for "November/Dec. 1882" is a biography of the composer, etc./letters to/from publisher/etc.- is it?- then one can definitely put  in brackets- it's even better evidence than Hofmeister, BdlF or any of our other usual methods, so long as one does know that we're talking about the same edition. Was going to put in 1883, but that's just based on a Google Books search in which "1882" was nowhere to be found (no contemporary mention of publication in 1882, not until 1883)- hardly decisive though.
