[Op. 24 no. 1]. Trois Quatuors pour 2 Violons, Viola et Violoncelle... Oeuvre 24. Livr. I. Prix. 1 rth. 5 sgr.

Berlin: H. Wagenführ [PN 111], [1832]. Folio. Disbound. Violino Io.: [1] (title), 2-8 pp.; Violino IIo.: 6 pp.; Viola: 6pp.; Violoncello: [1], (blank), 2-7, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved.

Heavily browned; "4" in contemporary manuscript in ink to upper right corner of title; small publisher's handstamp to lower left corner of title.

Probable First Edition. Rare.

First quartet (in G major) of a set of three (the other two are in F major and B-flat major). WorldCat (3 copies of the G-major quartet in the U.S., at Harvard, the Eastman School of Music, and the Milwaukee County Library System). Grove erroneously identifies the G major quartet as the second of the set. Both Grove and MGG2 give "Leipzig" as place of first publication (of the entire set), with the dates "1827" (Grove) and "1833" (MGG2) but without mention of a publisher; we have not been able to locate any such publication.
