Inside the front cover is an advertisement by the publisher showing there were similar books for other instruments including trumpet, drums, saxophone, horn, trombone, oboe and tuba. The publisher adds that there ‘will soon be a full compliment of Wind, Brass and Percussion Publications.’ The advertisement also states there are Books 1 & 2 for the bagpipe but to date the writer has not located any others. The number ‘1’ on the cover and title-page probably indicates this is Book 1.
