Music books, apparently a fragment of a collection of at least twenty-one volumes, all apparently the original property of the daughters of James Douglas of Cavers (succeeded 1815).

Identifier: MSS.21784-21796

Scope and Contents

MSS.21784-21790 are numbered at the front, and the contents of MSS.21784-21785, 21787-21792 are preceded by contents lists, all apparently in the same hand.

From the four dates visible, the collection would appear to have been in the possession of the Misses Douglas about or somewhat before the mid-19th century.
