Navigation etc.

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.
