^ Scanned in at Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Site, in References. Op.41 is mentioned in HMB as another work entirely from 1845, and op.44 in F minor seems to be Rosenhain's first sonata - so this may be a typo or misreading on someone's part (it seemed to be op.41, but now am assuming this should be op.44).
^ HMB gives a cello sonata here and RISM (opac.rism.info) gives a manuscript D minor viola sonata from 1893, but these may be the same work
