The Ryan/Cole Collection
This collection contains the tunes in
Ryan's Mammoth Collection of Fiddle Tunes
and the later republished edition by Cole:
1000 Fiddle Tunes
These are the same book. Ryan's was the original edition, published in 1884 in Boston, Massachusetts.
In 1940, the Cole Publishing Company republished it without giving credit to the original
editor or publisher.
It is now available from Mel Bay in a
very nice printed edition,
edited by Patrick Sky.
This online version is in abc notation.
Serious folk musicians will want a printed copy. Meanwhile, you can get
single tunes here,
if you have abc software installed on your computer.
