Catalogue Note

Early issues of the first edition of "The Marriage of Figaro" are scarce. All contain the same title and musical text, but Gertrud Haberkamp has distinguished sixteen separate issues based on the states of Simrock's catalogue at the end.  According to her list, the latest opera mentioned here is Paër's Camilla, implying a date of c.1799.
