Note:
The original date of 1757 is changed to 1767 on the title page of the BSB provided copy. Since most of the catalogues date this book 1757, and the French version [] was published in 1757 too, this is believed to be a mistake.

Note:
Music table is the same as in [Stadler, 1781], yet the music itself is different (this might indicate that the book was plagiarised). Dated 1793 by IMSLP. Similar edition of English Country Dances Music Generator [Anleitung, 1793–1798?] is dated 1793. Title page signed by W. A. Mozart, but Mozart has never been in Bonn.

Note:
This music generator looks just like a reprint of [Stadler, 1781] in Italian, yet is claimed to be written by Franz Josef Haydn. Dated 1840–1860? by the library without any reasoning. Dated 1793 by Google Books and in The Dice Game YouTube video.

Note:
The copy provided by the National Library of Sweden does not contain any instructions on how to generate the music — it is just a pile of the musical bars. A bunch of information of the Kaleidakustikon was collected by Asger Askov Blekinge and is available on his GitHub. The edition is dated 1817 by Lars Thielen in his article about music generators. Asger dates this edition between 1820 and 1821.
