The dedication in this volume is undated.
The running title at bottom of page is 'McKercher's Music.' The opening set is 'Faskally House, with Variations'.
The basslines are mostly single lines again, although many delineate two voices and a few tunes use dyads or octaves instead. This volume also uses accent signs.
Biographical info: Niel Gow (1727-1807), father of the famous Gow family, lived in Inver near Dunkeld. (Glen 2, viii-xiv; Grove; Alburger; Murdoch, 41-48) Gow's fourth son Nathaniel (1763-1831), violinist and Edinburgh publisher, was perhaps the most famous of the siblings; but his brothers William, John and Andrew also traded in music (John and Andrew in London). Nathaniel's son, Niel Junr., lived 1795-1823.
