Paganini: "Variazioni di bravura" (on Caprice No.24) for violin and guitar

Can anyone tell me if it is known for certain that Paganini composed the guitar part for "Variazioni di bravura" (on Caprice No.24) for violin and guitar?  Does an autograph MS exist proving that Paganini composed the guitar part, and not that another guitarist added it later?Thanks, ThomasSee More
