Egon und Emilie Kein Familiendrama von Christian Morgenstein... Opus 46. Klavier-Auszug. [Piano-vocal score]. With autograph annotations
Mainz: B. Schott's Söhne [PN 32168], 1928. These two scores evidently provided the basis for the edition with English text published by Associated Music Publishers, Inc. recorded in OCLC with no definitive date ("1928-1956"), Edgar and Emily Not a Family Drama. An Austrian-born composer, Toch became a naturalized American in 1940. "His experiences in the [First World] war left a mark on him, and his first composition after it, the Ninth String Quartet op.26 (1919), signals a new stylistic direction. Where the prewar works, for all their originality, are audibly indebted to Brahms, the Ninth Quartet is more radical, employing an extended tonality and an uncompromising emphasis on the linear dimension. It and the works that followed earned Toch a prominent place in the musical avant garde... The two short operas Die Prinzessin auf der Erbse op.43 (1927) and Egon und Emilie op.46 (1928) were not only examples of contemporary Zeitoper but also way-stations in the composer's search for a libretto for a full-length opera." Anja Oechsler in Grove Music Online.. Folio. Original publisher's gray printed wrappers with device in dark orange to upper. [1] (recto title, verso cast and instrumentation lists), 3-[22] pp. music, 1f. (recto blank, verso publisher's advertisement).

Two copies (one marked "Master Copy" in turquoise pencil to upper wrapper), both with autograph corrections and annotations in red and lead pencil and textual additions in English in blue pencil to one copy and ink to the other, some in all likelihood in Toch's autograph.

With two further pages of musical corrections in Toch's hand in lead pencil annotated in red pencil, possibly in another hand.
