The following link gives a lot of biographic info about Saint-George.
He mostly seems to have written for piano/harpsichord and violin. Can't
see anything for harpsichord solo.
The following is available from Minkoff, and could well be playable on
solo harpsichord, like the Boismortier sonatas for harpsichord and
Saint-George, J. Boulogne, Chevalier de. — Trois sonates pour le
clavecin ou le forte-piano avec accompagnement de violon obligé. Ier
œuvre de clavecin. Réimpression de l’édition de Paris, Le Duc, 1781.
Genève, 1988. 1 volume in-4 de 32 pages et un fascicule de 8 pages
encarté, broché. (Clav. fr. XVIIIe. Tome XXV) ISBN

I suspect the following from Artaria are the same sonatas.
