HISTORICAL NOTES

The first publication of this collection of brief exercises for the piano was published in Paris by Maurice Schlesinger in 1839 under the title:

"Le premier maître de piano, 75 études journalières pour piano à l'usage des jeunes elèves".
["The first piano teacher, 75 daily piano studies for young students"]

The first edition therefore contained only 75 exercises that would eventually increase to 100 in the 1840 edition published in Vienna by Tobias Haslinger with the title:

"Erster Wiener Lehrmeister im Pianoforte-Spiel, Neue Sammlung Originator Melodischer Uebungsstücke in fortschreitender Ordnung".
[The first piano teacher in Vienna, a new collection of original melodic exercises organized in order of increasing difficulty]
