Extra Information In 1787 the work was revised for string quartet.
According to Wikipedia, this version has come under suspicion for authenticity, but Grove Music doesn't seem to consider it doubtful. A version for piano was published in 1788 – not by Haydn but of which Haydn approved.

Misc. Comments

Wikipedia editors aren't alone in regarding the string quartet version of doubtful source (etc)- HC Robbins Landon did as well (in one of his books on Haydn's symphonies, if memory serves; will re-check if I can...), I believe. (Who wrote the Grove article, by the way? George Grove? Or a particular editor? "Grove" is an unhelpful shorthand- at best.) - Schissel

The (a) version for piano was published as 7 Sonatas, Op.45 by Longman and Broderip, registered at London's Stationers' Hall on January 17, 1788. (The Artaria piano reduction available above may, however, be the version referred to as approved of by Haydn; as noted it may have been published even earlier than the Longman & Broderip...) - ES
