DOSC no.
John Carolan’s book, 1748, the “Carolan-Delaney fragment” (Dublin, National Library of Ireland, LO 1635)
Tunes marked with x are said to be likely copied from John Carolan into Lee.
Lee (1778-80?). I’m using a later reprint: A Favourite Collection of the much Admired Old Irish Tunes, the original and genuine compositions of Carolan the celebrated Irish bard, set for the Harpsichord, Piano Forte, Violin and German Flute Hime, Dublin, [1798] (Dundee, Wighton Collection, W10448
Bunting transcription (field notations of performance by tradition-bearers)
Bunting arrangement (set for piano or otherwise adapted, not field transcriptions)
Bunting printed piano books (1797, 1809, 1840)
