Misc. Notes:

From the uploader's personal library. For practical reasons, the score has been unstapled and scanned both sides, which affects the pagination. The Parts score (inner page covers, removed) supply a lengthy and informative discussion (German only) by the editor on Kraus's quartets in general and this one in particular.

Misc. Comments

Most confusing. If we're using the same VB list as on here, then VB 178 is a quartet in F minor, not C major. I gather there may be a revision 1 and 2 of VB, though, as with Kochel 0-6. Worth distinguishing if so (I've seen "VB2" used.)
