  • Scope and Contents

    The volume contains songs written ‘in Ceylon in 1866’ (folio ii) by Charles Stuart Davidson and further songs added until 1899 (folio 262). These are followed by notes (folio 268) on several of the songs. A number of related press cuttings found loosely enclosed have been tipped in after the notes (folio 316) and other press cuttings are pasted in among the notes.

    It is not clear whether the compiler is the C S Davidson who is described as clerk in the Edinburgh Directory from 1873-1874 to 1907-1908.
