It is 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 (like China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Some of the quartets of Smith according to the Finding Aid at Yale University (pages 21-24 of the David Stanley Smith collection finding aid.) (op.46 might be quartet 3 or 4 depending on the status of opus 2. Oddly, reminds me of the case of Hindemith's opus 2.)
