The source for this information is a photocopy of a book held in the Mitchell Library, Glasgow as part of the Kidson Collection. The book contains more than 24 tunes, has two styles of tune heading, and displays the additional date of 1792. The complete contents will be displayed here but bisecting the two and identifying the publisher for the other tunes will take a little more detective work. --JohnnyAdams 10:52, 6 June 2008 (BST) Village Music Project
