Extra Information Initially published by Walsh and Hare in 1711 (RISM A/I: B 2758), but because of a misprint on the title page that implied they were trio sonatas, there was a quick reprint in 1712, with the title changed to Solo’s for a Flute, with a through Bass for the Harpsicord or Bass Violin
