A Collection of Strathspey Reels & Country Dances &c With a Bass for the Violoncello or Harpsichord humbly dedicated to Mrs. Farquharson of Monaltrie by Robert Petrie at Kirkmichael Perthshire

Price 4/- EDINr. Printed for the Author and sold by STEWART & Co. JOHNSON & co. Lawn Market, And all the Music Sellers in Town and Country J. Johnson Sculpt.

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.

This version omits Petrie's bass line but I am currently nearing completion of a version which includes the bass line in a second voice.
