Published by Pleyel in 1830-- Publication noted in the Bibliographie de la France 1e série, 19e année (33e de la collection), Nº 4, 23 Janvier 1830, p.63, r.24.

Existence of a (autograph) manuscript doublebass part (@BNF) suggests that "2 cellos or cello and double bass" should be written for the first 20 quintets, including this one.
