The original edition is still available, printed on cheap paper with a splendid art deco cover.

There are a number of differences between the 1924 Zimmermann and 1959 Collected Editions. Most of the alterations are observed by Medtner/Ritchie in their 1947 recording, but a few are not and may be errors. These are mentioned below.

There are no fingerings in the 1959 edition.
