Vorschule Im Klavierspiel, Op. 101, by Ferdinand Beyer (1803--1863) was first published in 1860.

When compared with piano methods written in the 20th and 21st centuries, it appears more like a technique book than a piano method. This edition has been edited to be useful for today's piano students, either as a method (with teacher guidance) or as a supplementary book.
