MENDELSSOHN.
 

List of Mendelssohn's published works, from the Thematic Catalogue (B. & H. 1873), with the addition of the dates of composition, when discoverable, and the names of the Dedicatees.

The dates have been obtained in most cases from the autographs, and occasionally from letters or other sources. The autographs are distinguished from the author's own copies by having the initials H.D.m. or L.v.g.G. at the top. [App. p.717 "The dates given in the list are those attached by Mendelssohn to the autograph of the existing form of each work."]
