Misc. Notes RISM-A/II-000128856
This item forms part of the
Ricasoli Collection at the University of Louisville Music Library.
File 8 is cellos, not contrabassi. "Bassi" could mean a number of things in the Classical period - cellos, ripieni celli, contrabassi, continuo, etc.; here it fairly clearly means cellos. The tessitura of the "Bassi" part in section 5, in particular, goes below the low E of the contrabass (which I believe has been fairly constant) and this by itself suggests a cello part!

Misc. Comments

A one-line bass organ part is in fact how the basso continuo idea (the "continuous bass"; continuo is an adjective, not a noun) started (Taruskin from "Oxford History of Western Music".) The ♯ under the bass part in line 11 reinforces that this is probably organ (or) continuo, not organ specifically, despite notation.
