Catalogue Note

RARE. This edition resulted from an agreement between Beethoven and Muzio Clementi; all such so-called authentic English editions are rare and desirable.  This edition was recorded at Stationers Hall on 1 February 1811, although the songs were issued separately without a general title page.  The copies in London (BL. h.376.23.) and Oxford do not have the "No.5", whereas that in Hamburg does.  Tyson does not distinguish between the issues, and there is no watermark date on any of them.  Breitkopf & Härtel’s edition, Vier Arietten und ein Duett op.82, was finally issued only in July 1811.
