This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

This one -is- familiar as a serenade/divertimento for small string orchestra, iirc...
As noted in the NMA report p.17, Artaria published selected movements from these quartets, jumbled, as "Quartetto I", "II" and "III" in (ca.?) 1792; their complete publication seems to have waited until later. Pleyel published a complete (known) collection of Mozart's string chamber works ca.1804, it seems so not later than 1804, anyway...)
