Universal publishes a "Vienna Urtext" edition of both Sonatas that are
supposedly based on the original manuscripts--although there are editors
listed for both the clarinet and piano parts. I got my copies at Eble Music
in Iowa City. I've also seen them at Luyben in Kansas City and various
stores here at home (in Dallas)--so I'm certain that they're readily
