Publicity and Reviews: 

On the inside back page - dates and programmes of the four historical concerts for the 1910-1911 season.

Notes: 

Although the Köchel numbers are not listed for either of the two Mozart pieces, the serenade no. 12 in C minor is easily identifiable as K. 388, while the movement titles and time signatures of the sonata for violin and piano in A major enables it to be identified as K. 526.
