3 quartets in E and G major and A minor covered in some detail in Brown (1984), pp 198-202.
Published also by Paris: Maurice Schlesinger (Bibliographie de la France is misleading on the point here, implying that they are compositions by Charles Chaulieu-- Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 1e série, 18e année, Nº 51, 19 Décembre 1829, p.864, r.301. - but this is not the only time that a composer is uncredited or mis-credited @ BdlF) but BNF and several Worldcat entries help clarify here.
NB: Usually (see eg Bach 6 cello suites collection pages and in fact almost all collections pages...) collections pages like this are reserved for scores and parts of all, or at least more than one, of the works. If you have just one of the quartets (as in all the examples above) you can just move them to the relevant quartet page on the main Spohr category page. Otherwise this is just pointless duplication. There is a bundle of all 3 Op.82 quartets @ BSB (Digitized) that fits here nicely...
