Rufer (Engl.) pp. 38-40. Ringer p. 314. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 13-16. The first issue of the edition, shipped on July 30, 1914, was split: 50 copies were printed on high-quality laid paper; the remaining 200 copies were printed on regular paper. The copies on laid paper carry the printed note "Numerierte Vorzugsausgabe auf Bütten" to title. Hitherto unrecorded is the fact that all copies of this issue bear the note "Stich und Druck von Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig" to the lower right corner of the first page of music. The note "Weag" [Waldheim-Eberle A.G.] to p. 78, mentioned in the Schoenberg Complete Edition (Abteilung VI, Reihe B, Band 24, 1, critical report by Reinhold Brinkmann), is found only in the second issue of 1923. Albertine Zehme (1857-1946), an actress born in Vienna and later active in Berlin, is now exclusively remembered as the person who commissioned and first performed Pierrot Lunaire. "Read the preface, looked at the poems. I am enthusiastic. A brilliant idea, entirely in my spirit. I would do it even without a fee." Schoenberg in his diary. The poems are by the Belgian writer Albert Giraud (1860-1929) in a German translation by Erich Otto Hartleben (1864-1905).
