First edition of the vocal score of Don Giovanni. Haberkamp's second issue. Here, the orchestral accompaniment is arranged for piano by Carl Zulehner; the full score was not published for another decade. We have traced only one other copy of this edition at auction in the last 40 years. In addition, Haberkamp knows of only six copies of the first issue (and Fuld disagrees on the priority of issues).
