by Daniel Dow



Full title: Reells & Strathspeys. for the Violin, Harpsichord, Piano Forte or German Flute. Composed by Daniel Dow. Entered at Stationers Hall.

Publisher: Edinburgh: Neil Stewart

Printer: Edinburgh: Printed and Sold by J: Brysson, at his MusicShop

Description:

This small book is a reprint of 15 tunes from Twenty Minuets and Sixteen Reels, along with four minuets for the flute, which are printed in the expected place of the transposition for flute of the preceding tunes.
In the GB-En copy 'J: BRYSSON' has clearly been added in type to Neil Stewart's original engraved titlepage.
The titlepage itself appears to re-use that from Thirty Seven New Reells with the top line of text masked off.
Although the score claims to have been entered at Stationers' Hall, only Twenty Minuets and Sixteen Reels actually appear there.
