by Alexander Stratton
Full title: A New Collection of Waltzes Opera Dances Strathspeys & Reels, Arranged for the Piano Forte Violin & German Flute dedicated to Miss Bathia Robinson by Alexander Stratton
Printer: Printed for the Publisher
The book begins with 17 pages of waltzes, followed by a few reels and strathspeys before a more varied selection of dances, including a Polonaise and a 'Spanish Bollero'. Undated, and no watermark.
The reels and strathspeys have simple four-beat basslines, some with dyads and chords. The later dances are more pianistic.
Biographical info: The titlepage informs us that Stratton was a Banff schoolteacher.
