Not sure what Mr. Quinn means in saying that Stanford's first violin concerto was unpublished- it was published (in some form, at least- possibly only a violin/piano reduction; I do not know) by Breitkopf & Hartel as early as 1904; there are copies of this publication at the British Library. If "in full score or parts" was meant, that wasn't unusual, publishers often did, in those days, and still do, kept that material for orchestral works available only for rental rather than sale - I gather. Not quite the same as "unpublished", however :)
