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.
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.
Biographical info: The ‘Young Lady’ may have been Catherine E. White, who registered the book in Stationers’ Hall on 17 August 1804.
