The "first edition" parts seem to be held (among other places) in a copy from the edition of the Flonzaley Quartet at the New York Public Library, see link.

In this concert a quartet in E minor and in manuscript by Ottokar Novacek is played by the Brodsky Quartet." (date Jan. 12 1891, "Vierte Kammermusik [Serie I] im neuen Gewandhaus".)
