From preface: "Prior to that, the original scores of the Concertante Variations and the Piano Concerto had been published--the former in 1926, the latter without date, and both at Wittgenstein’s expense." - however, they were both published, not just copyist's mss, but typeset through a vanity publisher (unless one misreads)- but in very small quantities.
Responding to my own comment here, after reading the preface to the recently-issued (effectively) first edition of the (original version of the) (very very beautiful - Ed.) clarinet quintet no.2 in A major (1938) - Not so sure of that what was published of the first version of these scores, in 1924/n.d., would count as publication. The preface to the Octavian Edition also mentions something about Wittgenstein, and then his estate, often hoarding many of the commissioned works scores, parts, etc. until - well -very recently, even some that he had no interest in performing... (which was why the 2010 edition was the first one of the original version of that work, e.g.) Odd and unfortunate... - ES
