List of song sheets

Acknowledgements

This list, an outcome of AHRC-funded research undertaken by Janette Currie, covers those separately-published early song sheets that contain music and text for a single song. For such items the survival rate does not seem to have been high, and for this reason each entry in the list gives the location of a surviving copy of the item listed. In addition to song sheets of this kind, many songs composed or collected by Hogg appeared during his lifetime, with music, in collections.

Information about the song sheets is derived from a number of invaluable sources:
 
• Edith C. Batho’s bibliography in The Ettrick Shepherd (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1927), also her additions to the bibliography in The Library, 16 (1935-36), 309-26

• David Groves (ed.), Selected Poems and Songs (Edinburgh: Scottish Academic Press, 1986)

• Gillian Hughes, Hogg's Verse and Drama: A Chronological Listing (Stirling: James Hogg Society, 1990), and a list of single song sheets also supplied by Gillian Hughes

• Library catalogues and the online COPAC service located at http://copac.ac.uk [accessed from 2003-2007]
