EFDSS got a few of the '24 Country Dances for the year 17xx' books obtained by a Mr. Apted from a cupboard full of stuff he had bought at a sale for a shilling. In 1966 EFDSS issued 'The Apted Book of Country Dances', 24 total dances from originals of 1765 to 1784. The titles are those of the dances. 13 tunes were dropped and new (old) ones substituted.
