Publisher: Edinburgh: Urbani & Liston

Printer: Urbani & Liston

Date: 1804

Description:

At GB-En, the Glen copy is signed NCE [HCE?]. The collection includes a piece based on the birds in Stedman's Narrative of Surinam, and some geographical references are colonial; the last page juxtaposes Walthamstow and Merchiston.

Notes:

The settings are mostly pianistic, but a few strathspeys and reels towards the end of the book show a halfway house between 'classical' piano writing and the familiar bassline styles.

Gore: L2
