This is a fine example of early Parisian music lithography, specifically from André's Charenton printing operation (Twyman 247ff.)

Gelinek met Mozart in Prague at a performance of Don Giovanni and through his recommendation was appointed chaplain and keyboard teacher at the court of Count Kinsky. Mozart thought highly of Gelinke's abilities for improvisation.
