Oblong, 31 x 24 cm, 2 vols, 4, c.40 pp. Full-color halftone of the autograph fair copy dedicated to Madame la Comtesse Esterházy née Comtesse Batthyany. This publication reproduces the manuscript of the Impromptu in G-flat major op. 51 from the Library of Congress (Selden-Goth Collection) in Washington DC. The history of this autograph is convoluted; until 1926, it was held by the Musikhistorisches Museum von Wilhelm Heyer in Cologne; its later owners are unknown. All we know is that as of 1946, the manuscript already belonged to the Selden-Goth collection.. Commentary (Pol-Eng-Ger-Sp-Fr-Jp) by Zofia Chechlińska.
