Angus MacKay Book

A Collection of Ancient Piobaireachd or Highland Pipe Music. Angus MacKay, Edinburgh, 1838.  A prospectus for this book was issued in August 1835, promising publication about 1st February 1836.  Angus MacKay's own copy of the book, with corrections apparently made by him, is still extant. The details of these are contained in the Kilberry folders.  The preliminary pages include some instructions with exercises which are short quotations from pibrochs.
