Franziska Roll-Mayerhöfer's autograph at the back
The dedication is made to Betty Schott and is dated 20 April 1864.

Betty Schott was the wife of music publisher Franz Schott (1811-1874 ). The publishing house of "Schott" still exists at Mainz. Franz Schott was also Mayor of the city of Mainz from 1865-1871. In the 19th century there was a rather close business relationship between Richard Wagner and Franz Schott. Wagner did compose (piano) music for Frau Schott who died in 1875: "Albumblatt für Frau Betty Schott" (1875).
