 Chevalier Saint Georges concerto

In another thread the subject of this missing work came up. It was speculated that there might have been a mix up of names and that the concerto may have actually been by Solère, which I thought was a fair possibility ... But then I came across what may have been the original source of this information, a mention in the Musical Almanac of 1782-83 which states:

"Mr. Solers acquired the same rights to public satisfaction by the clarinet concerto which he performed, & which was composed by Mr. de St. George."

The almanac is now digitised here:
The reference is on page 1822.

Whether anything survives is another matter, but worth having a good look.
