This piece is also available in another form, reproducing much more closely the original from 1900 (nearly like a facsimile or a copy from a copy-shop). It is not as beautiful as the piece on this site, because the formatting is not as good, and it is a little too small, so you can't read it as easily. Furthermore it contains the complete fingering from Herrmann Scholtz from 1900, which is quite bad in the maintainer's opinion, so he dropped the fingering for the version on this site. It will be of interest to people who want to see the original version with the original fingering but cannot get it another way, so they can find a "fake" of the original on the maintainer's website:

The maintainer has also produced his own edition, which is available at:
