Stamps on title pages and throughout each act indicate that the score was rented through the Leipzig office of Verdi's publisher Ricordi, apparently during a German revival of the opera in the 1920s. Blank pages following each act are stamped 1929. Part of act two and missing fragments of a few other pages have been replaced by later copyists. Metronome markings, cuts, and other performance markings appear throughout the score. The title page of act one is signed by conductor Leopoldo Mugnone.
Bound by a former owner. "D. Walter" stamped on each spine.
Opera with a libretto by Salvadore Cammarano, based on Friedrich von Schiller's play Kabale und Liebe, premiered at the Teatro di San Carlo, Naples, on December 8, 1849.
