||Cello and Basso (probably 2nd Cello)
These are the only cello sonatas by Boccherini published during his life-time.
For G.10, Gérard distinguishes between a version for cello and basso and a version for two cellos (= G.75). Since the basso part in Boccherini's cello sonatas is generally not figured and can be played very well on a second cello, there is probably no difference at all between these versions. All continuo realizations are modern arrangements. For a cello/piano version of G.10, see Cello Sonata, G.10, E-flat major (Boccherini, Luigi).
The Bland edition is not mentioned by Gérard, who lists 3 other editions of the original version of these sonatas, all by London publishers: the first edition by Bremner (ca.1770-75), another by Campbell (between 1782-95), and a third by Forster (between 1803 and 1816).
