Colin Campbell's Instrumental Book Vol. 1 +The first volum continuing 83 tunes. Inscribed John Campbell’s Book in the year of our Lord 1815. Deposited by Miss Phillis Bartholomew, 1950. This volume contains many revisions showing how Colin Campbell’s notation developed. The second volume ([[C2]]), which has fewer corrections and an 1814 watermark, appears to be a fair copy made in about 1815. Two other documents shed light on the evolution of Campbell’s notation: a presentation copy of one tune discovered by Keith Sanger ([[C0]]) and four tunes copied by Angus MacKay from a manuscript now lost ([[CK]]).  +
Colin Campbell's Instrumental Book Vol. 2 +This is a fair copy by the author of his second volume, originally compiled in 1797. It seems likely that a fair copy of volume 1 was taken to Edinburgh by his son, John, in 1816, where it was rejected by the Highland Society adjudicators but purchased by Sir John Murray MacGregor. Only the original volume 1 and this fair copy of volume 2 survive. They remained in the family and were purchased from Ann Campbell, Oban, by John Bartholomew in 1909.  +
