There was also an adition of the Etudes published in the series George Alexandre Macfarrens Universal Library of Pianoforte Music. London Jullien & Co. 1854. The first Etude in F minor was published in a different version - allegedly based on the autograph in a different measure - in the complete edition published by Oxford University Press [T. I. Etudes] by Eduard Ganche in 1932. The authenticity of the source used by Ganche was questioned by Arthur Hedley  who published in 1940 the Etude in F minor on the basis of an autograph that was in his possession and deliberately corrected Ganche's edition.
