|Format:||Hardback||Special Attributes:||First and Only Edition, Norman MacDonald of Skye's Copy, Manuscript Addition, 1st Edition|
A COLLECTION OF
BY JAMES BETT
LARGE HARD-BOUND BOOK. Original decorated cloth, repaired, 92pp, tipped in leaf opposite p. 92 (unrecorded in references - see below). Cannon ref: 328
CONDITION: VERY GOOD. The original covers have been repaired. Some water staining to the front cover and some loss to the gilt (see photo). Binding tight. Fresh dark endpapers. Hand-written copy of Alexander MacDonald's jig by Norman MacDonald . [This book belonged to, and all the notes within it were written by, Norman MacDonald of Skye - a well known piper who wrote Father John MacMillan of Barra - one of the most famous pipe marches ever penned.] Various notes/inks throughout (see photos below) including canntaireachd. Many of the tunes have their (original?) Gaelic names added in pen by MacDonald. A number of inserted cuttings relating to piping/pipe music, presumably collected by MacDonald. The book is not signed, but it was part of a large collection that was discovered on the floor of a Glasgow bookshop, all belonging to this piper - many of them signed (a few tatty examples of which I still have). A good and important copy of a very scarce collection. There is only one copy recorded on COPAC.
I am also selling a manuscript in Norman MacDonald's hand in a separate listing.
SEE PHOTOS BELOW TO READ A FULL LIST OF ALL THE TUNES IN THE COLLECTION.
