Musick for Allan Ramsay’s Collection of 71 Scots Songs

Detail of frontispiece from 'Musick for Ramsay's Scots Songs'

Musick for Allan Ramsay’s Collection of Scots Songs, presenting simple settings of the tunes for the first edition of the songs in Allan Ramsay’s Tea-Table Miscellany of 1724, is a rare and consequently much-treasured item. With only a tiny number of copies now extant, the copy held at the University of South Carolina is a prized possession in the G. Ross Roy Collection of Burnsiana & Scottish Literature.
