Publisher. Info. Berlin: T. Trautwein, n.d.[1844]. Plate 859, 860, 865-868.
Misc. Notes If this was found at, they no longer seem to have it (or my attempt to find it turns only some of the other volumes up, not vol.1 which would have Op.2 (actually, from HMB, Op.2 starts from 65, 1844: pp.162, 178)). Good on Trautwein for releasing most of the Haydn quartets in the 1840s though...
