String Quartet in A minor, Op.17 (Labey, Marcel)

It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1927 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

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.

Wikipedia and Earsense claim that the composition dates of the two Labey string quartets are 1919 and 1948. The latter gives his 2nd string quartet Op.51 and also notes 4 violin sonatas, 2 piano trios, a string sextet, etc.
