Beethoven, Ludwig van (1770-1827)

String Quartet, Op. 127, Grand Quatuor Pour Deux Violons, Alto Et Violoncelle Composé Et Dédié à Son. Altesse Monseigneur Le Prince Nicolas De Galitzin Lieutenant-Colonel De La Garde De S.M.J. De Toutes Les Russies...Oeuv. 127.

Schott: Paris, [1826]. First Edition. Folio. 13 + 12 + 11 + 11 pp. Disbound. Crayon performance markings in first violin and cello parts, foxing throughout, otherwise very good.
Complete set of four parts. The violin part has a label pasted over the publisher's name, but Schott/Paris is unobscured on the title pages of the other parts. The viola exhibits a different price, stamped "12f.", instead of the engraved "9f." of the other parts.

This is a Parisian edition issued simultaneously with the Mainz edition (though the Parisian imprint lacks the plate number, 2351). The Mainz edition was also re-issued with the addition of "à Paris rue de Bourbon No 17," but the lack of plate number demonstrates that this is the Parisian printing of the first edition.
