An update by Geoff Hore 2008-2015.  The writing in black font is from A Bibliography of Bagpipe Music. The update comments are in blue font.

 

Cannon described one edition of the first book in this collection and one edition of the second book.

The present writer has three different editions of book one and one of book two. Both books will be listed here.
