The title page of was inscribed to F. Mendelssohn Bartholdy 'als Zeichen innigster Verehrung von J. Fischhof. Wien Aprile 841' (see Green Book XIII 192).

The manuscript is closely related both to the one in the Nationalbibliothek, Vienna, for which see the Beethoven-Archiv, Bonn, Werke, II. 2, 1970, p. VIII, and the corrected copy of the piano arrangement, with which are shared the Italian version of the title and the heading (MS. M. Deneke Mendelssohn c. 76, fol. 50v) 'Atto 2do'. Copying errors were made in MS. M. Deneke Mendelssohn c. 77 on fol. 19v, where two pages were probably turned together, and between fols. 90v and 95v, where a quire? of the original may have been misplaced.
