[K472, 473, 474, 476, 519, 523, 524, 441, 517, 520, 284d (307), 539, 619, 416c (433), 596, 597, 598, 295b (308), 437, 579, 210a (152), 340a (392), 518, 340b (391), 529, 340c (390), 531, 468, 530, 367a (349)]. XXX Gesänge mit Begleitung des Pianoforte
Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel. [1799]. Oblong folio. Half leather with marbled boards, raised bands on spine with typed label: "Mozart – Oeuvres V." 1f. (series title: "Oeuvres Complettes de Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart" with pictorial vignette by W. Böhm after G. V. Kininger incorporating musical instruments), [i] (title), [i] (preface), 5 (table of contents with printed critical annotations), 6-100 pp. Typeset, with engraved series title. Printed on various types of paper, some of them blue/green in colour. Without watermarks. Volume no. "V" printed to foot of imprint and all numbered pages. Additional stanzas of songs printed as residual text. Some pages (7, 63, 65, 85, 87, 91, 93) with text only. Early former owner's signature to lower right corner of series title in ink: "Fr. Kerner." Slightly foxed and soiled; small hole to pp. 75-76; minor dampstaining to upper inner corners. . First Edition, second issue of at least 15 numbers: K473, 520, 284d, 539, 416c (433), 295b (308), 437, 579, 210a (152), 340a (392), 518, 340b (391), 529, 340c (390), and 530 (although without watermarks present in the first issue as described by Haberkamp). Five additional numbers (K472, 468, 474, 517, and 518) were claimed by Constanze Mozart to have been published in 1788, but no such publications have been traced and presumably do not, in fact, exist. These five additional numbers are thus, in all likelihood, also first editions. Haberkamp I pp. 409-15. Haberkamp II, plates 376-79. Hoboken 12, 701. Hirsch IV, 987. RISM M7316. Like other contemporaneous editions of music with a sung text in German, the front matter (except series title) uses German instead of the otherwise more common French. The critical annotations to the table of contents (Haberkamp II plate 379) foreshadow the scholarly editions of the later 19th century. The abbreviations "MM" ("Mozart Manuscript") and "MW" ("Mozart Witwe [widow]") are used as bibliographical references. Dates of composition are given if known; most (but not quite all) of the poets are credited. Some of the original poems, apparently considered inappropriate, have been replaced with new ones by "D. Jäger" of Leipzig (K340a, 340b, 529, 340c, and 468), with the discarded original texts still appearing in the table of contents. German texts by Jäger have been added as a second underlay to numbers whose original texts are in French (K284d and 295b) or Italian (K437, 579, 210a). French texts by "Herr Hélisberg" (first name unknown) have been added as a second underlay to some German songs.
