Navigation etc.

According to Eitner, republished by Breitkopf & Härtel (in German translation? He gives German titles, but this may be his addition) in the (early?) 19th century (Det Kongelige Bibliot., Copenhagen has a copy of this edition (location given as Lipsia).)

As to date, advertised in 1817? in a Birchall ad at the back of the 3rd edition of John Calcott's "A Musical Grammar: In Four Parts". So (unless 1817 at the first page is not an accurate date for that advertisement) published anyway no later than 1817 (and a 1810 volume lists his duets Op.6, so guessing 1810s, anyway.)

Manuscript, at Parma, of no.2 (or another work on the same text by Asioli?) described here.
