Bagpipe Music MSS. Fetch £250

 Original manuscripts of bagpipe music by John Grant were sent to Christie’s presale yesterday from an unnamed source. The manuscripts formed the authors own complete collection of his works, many of which have previously been published in “Piobaireachd: Its Origin in Construction.”1

The manuscripts were illustrated throughout with water-colour drawings of Scottish castles and scenery. The collection was purchased by a London bookseller for £250.
