24 Country Dances

During the late 1700s and early 1800s, there was a series of dance books (music + dance figures) published in London, with various editors arranging each year's publication. This directory is an attempt to collect scans of as many of them as can be found, and also transcribe the music to ABC form.

The ABC versions of many of these tunes were made by Andrew Kuntz of Fiddler's Companion fame. Andrew has done us a real service by digging up the history of thousands of tunes, and putting it all online for easy use. I've transcribed tunes from other books in the series, and various other people have sent me their transcriptions.

If you have an ABC of any of the tunes in these collections, could you send me a copy? Be sure to give yourself credit in a Z: header line.

Also, if you have a printed copy or photocopy of any of these collections not transcribed yet, could you contact me and let me know how to get a copy?
