Misc. Comments

Unless Bessems composed two or more string trios both published in the 1860s, this might also be the his string trio published by Lemoine in 1862 - Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 
2e année, 51e? année, Nº14, 5 Avril 1862, page 153, registration 794.

(In fact, Worldcat gives the same opus number, 90, for the 1862 "Grand trio", published by Lemoine.)
