When was the first published edition? Might be some information in the Haydn complete edition, though unlike the corresponding NMA (Mozart) I don't think that's as nearly completely available online, scores and source-discussions both, as this. Still, there are other ways to get clues (early editions of course don't mention Hoboken numbers on their frontispieces, but their catalog entries as prepared by librarians sometimes- even almost often- do, hopefully accurately (and similarly with other composers and catalog systems), in hopes of making like things match with like :) ) - Schissel (according to WorldCat, possibly published as early as ca.1800 or so as part of an early Breitkopf & Härtel "oeuvres complettes" , volume 10 of which contained:
"Cah. 10 8 sonates pour le pianoforte : 5 sonates avec acc. de violon et violoncelle [es-moll, Es-Dur, A-Dur, F-Dur, g-moll], 3 sonates avec acc. de violon [D-Dur, Es-Dur, A-Dur]" - the E-flat minor accompanied sonata being, one supposes, this work. It was more than usual to call a piano trio an (accompanied) sonata - not even a trio sonata, just a sonata - though Mozart and some others had started calling them trios, too, I think, at a certain point...)
