Is this actually his violin concerto (published ca.1810 -see Letelllier's "Daniel-François-Esprit Auber: The Man and His Music"), merely transposed for cello by other hands? (If so, needs to be re-"instrumented" and re-tagged.) Incomplete parts are at BNF (see link) - "Fl, htb., 2 p. chacun, cl., 3 p., b.on, 4 p., le reste mq." (BNF has - at present undigitized? - this () and the cello solo part of the 2nd cello concerto in edited/recopied manuscripts "d'après Riemann, édité sous le nom de : Jacques-Michel Hurel de Lamare".) The violin concerto, note, was republished in 2016.
(Where is "1809" from? Did he compose his first cello concerto at the same time as his first violin concerto was published, more or less?...)
Auber did compose at least 3 cello concertos, though, and this might be one of them, if the tag Cello Concerto No.1 on the cover is accurate anyway. No.3 in B♭ major (dedicated to Girod, and ms. found in the Belgian Royal Library) is described @ .
This or another concerto arranged by Jean-Michel Hurel de Lamare and attributed to Auber was published in 1881, while a "2nd concerto" in D was published in 1888 both by Richault. The first concerto arranged by Lamare has partial orchestral parts in manuscript @ BNF ("Fl, htb., 2 p. chacun, cl., 3 p., b.on, 4 p., le reste mq.")
