L'APPRENTI SORCIER. D & F. 5292, PAUL DUKAS, A. Durand & Fils, Editeurs, PARIS
French sheet music circa 1890's. From careful study it would appear to be a first edition though it is not dated. From Wikipedia: The Sorcerer's Apprentice (L'apprenti sorcier) is a symphonic poem by the French composer Paul Dukas, written in 1896-97. Subtitled "Scherzo after a ballad by Goethe," the piece was based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's 1797 poem of the same name. By far the most performed and recorded of Dukas's works, its notable appearance in the Walt Disney 1940 animated film Fantasia has led to the piece becoming widely known to audiences outside the classical concert hall.
