I don't have a Kipnis discography handy (someone probably compiled one 
for The Record Collector magazine) but judging from that catalog number, 
it probably was released around 1946-47.

Not yet, as far as I know.  A Columbia set discography is nearing 
completion but the Santa Barbara Victor project is up to only around 
1926 now, just before the first Victor numbered sets were issued.  It 
will eventually include the set listings, I presume.  But maybe Sam 
Brylawski could provide the info now.
