Misc. Comments

Probably published in 1812 when the first edition had "Bureau de Musique A. Kühnel" on the cover. See AMZ, July 1812.

Sibley Library's scan of a Pleyel edition of No.2 (plate 351, so possibly from ca.1805?) confirms that the dedicatee of No.2 is also Joseph Erdödy. (This may indeed be an earlier edition than the Peters edition above.) BSB scan of No.3 confirms likewise for that quartet.
