An early edition, dating from the same year as the first edition. Craw 197. Not in RISM. WorldCat (2 copies only, at the British and the University of Cambridge. The work is usually listed as "op. 56" following the presumed first edition published by Breitkopf & Härtel in 1803. The editions by Magasin de musique (Cherubini et al.), Nägeli, and Richault use the opus number "46." There is no trace of the extended ossias for the right hand of the piano part, characteristic of the early French editions of this work. The ossias serve to make the work playable on instruments with a shorter keyboard. Pianos with a compass extending to C three octaves above middle C were apparently standard in London at the time.
