“one of the best and most comprehensive collections of Scottish song-music extant.” – Glasgow West, on Kyle’s Scottish Gems.

In the late 19th-century, book printing became an art form. Binders created decorative bindings and offered a beautiful display of their book. Music was also a profitable fine art so turn-of-the-century print shops took popular music and bound it in their already charming bindings. This first edition collection of over 200 traditional Scottish tunes, with piano and vocal parts, is a gorgeous piece of art fusion.
