Publisher. Info. Vienna: Artaria, n.d.(ca.1806?). Plate 1856.
Misc. Notes Heavily annotated edition preceded by a composer-written preface dated 1806, so dates from 1806 or later. Artaria plate table only just begun and partially guesswork, so hard to say from there.

Misc. Comments

Mentioned in Josef Zuth’s 1930 book Simon Molitor und die Wiener gitarristik (um 1800) which may provide more information on the work’s date etc. than I am able to here, but Google Books has only a snippet view of the latter. Perhaps in a library. (Zuth, as noted, edited this also; his edition was published by Goll, Vienna, in 1919. See e.g. WorldCat.)

Probably published before 1817 in any case since Whistling 1817 lists Molitor’s opus 10.
