In his original Bibliography Cannon made it quite clear his research into this book was by no means complete and since then a number of previously unknown copies have turned up. By comparing each one against the others an accurate chronology of the publication history has been established and the results have been detailed in Chapter 3 of Donald MacDonald’s Collection of Piobaireachd Volume I (1820) Volume I by Roderick Cannon and Keith Sanger, published by The Piobaireachd Society 2006. This was followed in 2011 when they edited Donald MacDonald’s Collection of Piobaireachd Volume II, also published by The Piobaireachd Society.

Those editions published since the 1970s are listed below.
