Will try to find a mention of the Richault editions in BdlF or a similar publication-related journal of the time.
His Op.32 Concerto de société (piano, orchestra or string quartet) was published (by Pitois et Frost, Strasbourg) in 1830 (May 14 1830 BdlF), suggesting (not proving) an 1820s date for these (earlier-published??) quartets (perhaps...) - E.S.
Listed (as quatuor- perhaps only the first was issued, or only that one available in Germany, by that time, hence the singular?) in Whistling Handbuch 1828, p.74.
