This is String Quartet nr. 18 by Gaetano Donizetti. An interesting feature of this edition which makes it rather unique, is the presence of the original autograph together with the edited score. In this way everybody can compare the derived version with the music the composer actually wrote.

The PostScript/PDF zip file links above include just the edited score. The autograph can be downloaded from the piece's further information page which also contains a large amount of information about the piece and its composer.
