Misc. Comments

Op.1 and other early "quartets" by Haydn not as certain to have been meant for "quartet" only (likewise works for quartet by contemporaries) as somewhat later works (as I recall.) - Schissel

Op.1 No.5 said in the notes to a recording to be an arrangement by other hands (not Haydn's?) of the composer's symphony "A" (1757/61) (Hob. I:107) (and is put in the "spurious works" section of that recording). ??? - ES

Publication:
According to Grave, Floyd & Margaret (2006), (p.139) "The String Quartets of Joseph Haydn":
In 1764 La Chevardière came out with Op.1 nos. 1-4 together with 2 quartets by Toeschi (to complete the standard 6). Op.1 no.6 was published (together with Op.1 nos.1-4, and Haydn's Divertimento in E-flat Hob.II:6 (aka Quartet 0), in 1765, by J. J. Hummel.) In 1768 La Chevardière came out with Op.4, which was Haydn's (now) Op.1 nos.1-6- of which 1-4 and 6 were by Haydn, and 5 was an arrangement of his symphony in B-flat Hob.I:107, Symphony "A", arranged for string (quartet or orchestra)...
