The names of dedicatees have not been standardised; thus, in the French first edition of Op. 7, the dedicatee is shown as ‘Monsieur Johns de la Novelle Orléans’, whereas in the German edition it appears as ‘Monsieur Johns de la Nouvelle Orleans’ and in the English as ‘Monsr Johns de la Nouvelle Orleans’. There may be minor differences between the name of the dedicatee as found in a given witness overview and in the actual score, owing to the policy on typography described under Title. Most of the dedications in Chopin’s first editions are located on title pages; broadly speaking, this is also true of manuscripts. A number of works lack any dedication. For some opuses the names of different dedicatees can be found in the respective editions brought out in France, Germany and England.
