Earliest appearance of the octet as a publication in HMB seems to be 1853. It is mentioned elsewhere in articles on the (then) late Schubert as early as 1836 or so... but not in a way that implies it was necessarily published already at that time.
According to MGG the first publication of the parts was in 1851, the score followed in 1853. (Publisher: C.A. Spina).
