I can send you scans of the Table of Contents if you really want them, but I think you'll find they are just about the same as what I posted. I counted the number of songs in one column, and multiplied by the number of columns. Short columns had 60 songs, and long columns had 75. The total was about 500 songs per volume, as I said above. The cover of each volume says "With over 1,000 favorite songs arranged for voice and guitar," which does lead one to believe that's 1,000 songs per volume - but I counted the actual Table of Contents, and I'm quite good at math. John in Brisbane and the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and I all came out with about the same number - about 500 per volume.
You didn't furnish an e-mail address or your name. If you think that John and I and UTK are lying and you really want scans of the indexes, contact me by e-mail - but I'm really quite good at this because I have posted indexes of dozens of songbooks, and I think you'll find the information I posted is quite accurate.
