Editor Adolf Hoffmann (1898-1983)
Publisher. Info. Wolfenbüttel: Möseler Verlag, 1960.
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. 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'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.
Misc. Notes From the uploader's personal library. For practical reasons, the score has been unstapled and scanned both sides, which affects the pagination. The Parts score (inner page covers, removed) supply a lengthy and informative discussion (German only) by the editor on Kraus's quartets in general and this one in particular.
