A Second Collection of Strathspey Reels & Country Dances &c for the Pianoforte, Violin and Violincello humbly dedicated to Mrs. Garden of Troup by Robert Petrie at Kirkmichael Perthshire

EDINr. Printed for the Author and sold by all the Music Sellers in Town and Country Geo. Walker Sculpt. Edinr.

Price to Subcribers 3/ to Nonsubscribers 6/.

Abc translation by Steve Wyrick at Concord California, from a facsimile of the original provided by Jan Tappan of Fiddler's Crossing, and using Phil Taylor's BarFly abc editor. All markings &c are Petrie's; I have corrected what I feel are minor errors and omissions in the manuscript and in all such cases have annotated my changes.

Petrie didn't note composers for most of these tunes. Many are his own compositions but a number are not. I checked all titles in Charles Gore's The Scottish Fiddle Music Index: the 18th and 19th Century Printed Collections (1994) and where there appears to be doubt on authorship I've left the composer field blank and noted Gore's citation for the earliest appearance of the tune.
