Hello mudcatters
I am trying to purchase ISBN 0 9529857 5 6; Lincolnshire Collections, Volume 1: The Joshua Gibbons Manuscript book of Lincolnshire Tunes, but it is proving very difficult to locate a retail outley with a copy, including Amazon and the Folk Network!
Does anyone know where I could get one from??
Thanks very much in advance

Hi Lin,
Hope the last link gave you better luck. The thing about these specialist tunebooks is that they usually print no more than about 1000, so they go out of print quite quickly and often don't get reprinted. I think this applies to both Jamie Knowles' books and the Joseph Kershaw Collection. You occasionally find the odd one on a stall at a festival.
I have the book if all else fails.

I can confirm that "bobad"s blue clicky is what you are after.
I have a copy but certainly don't want to sell it!!

Most outlets that used to have copies of the book have now sold out. I don't recall anybody contacting the South Riding Folk Arts Network about it (though if it was in December a message may have gone unnoticed; I was working very long hours), but we don't have any left. Neither, I think, does the Music Room, Hobgoblin and so on, though most still have it listed. We all need to update, evidently. Amazon listings are even less reliable; they tend to show books they have never had but have heard about at some point.

So far as I know, Peter Sumner is now living abroad, and the further books he had planned never appeared. A copy of the book is currently (16 Feb 2007) for sale on ebay (though from an American seller) - see Lincolnshire Collections Volume 1

The following link is to the search routine at Bookfinder.com. It should return any examples of the book available at whatever time you invoke it.

Hi Malcolm
thanks for the helpful advice. Im sorry to say that before Christmas when I was hunting for the book, I found it listed on the South Riding Folk website, and when I clicked on the link it threw up a window to email Ron Day. I did this, asking him for a copy, but I never received a reply.
I rang Bobad (see above) and the lady who answered the phone was rathere severe, and asked £20.00 for it, as a collectors item!! well I know the bokk retails at about £13.00 and all I want to do is play the bloomin tunes :-) so I declined
then yippee a friend suggested Hobgoblin, and guess what, their website showed 10 in stock for approx £14.00 so I ordered one quickly!!   so far they havent come back and declined, so Im keeping my fingies and toeses crossed.
thanks for the help everyone

well Congress at Laceby in particular at the moment, as we are currently learning a dance to that tune, but because my Morris side dance and play our local variety of dance tradition to Lincolnshire tunes, such as Louth Quickstep and Market Rase Quickstep I thought it would be nice to have a copy of the book of Joshuas tunes
we dance to the same tradition as Flag and Bone, if you know them at all - we are Rattlejag Morris

I'm afraid that I'd quite forgotten about that "mailto" link; I thought I had deleted all the "treasurer" ones when we changed servers a few months back and rationalised the email addresses. My fault, then, that your email didn't get to Ron. Glad to hear that Hobgoblin still have a few copies. I wouldn't be surprised if there were quite a few unclaimed "sale or return" copies kicking about out there. Peter himself may well have a box of the things in storage somewhere.

It's an unfortunate fact that some book dealers are a bit greedy, and inclined to ask inflated prices for books they can represent as rare (even if they are not). Equally unfortunately, it is sometimes necessary to grit your teeth and stump up. I still shudder at what I paid for the two-volume Cecil Sharp's Collection of English Folk Songs, though I actually got quite a good deal; sometimes a high price is genuinely justified by the market.

PJ music in Suffolk has it listed under Northumbrian Tunes on the following page for £7.95:

"Joshua Gibbons manuscript"

It is a great collection well worth having.

correction - wrong county - PJ is in Norfolk! ( but very close to Suffolk.)
And I also notice that he has the Linconshire Collection Vol 1 for £12, which may be the one you are looking for, rather than the joshua gibbons manuscript itself.

Hey Rozza..
I'm thrilled that you've put the time in to get all those tunes out to a bigger audience...
I have a few left from my first printing....and I think Mally still has them available??
I'm a little out of the loop out here in California, but I know several folks have shown an interest in the work since I left the UK in 1998....and what you have done should help get the tunes played even more....
Many thanks

Thanks Pete. I'm playing the tunes a lot more recently - especially Market Rasen Quickstep, Quickstep from Louth, Duke of York's Quickstep and Congress at Laceby - great tunes. Do they get played in Ca at all?

Finished another MS recently, the Thomas Sands Ms, which is now on Village Music Project. He may well have lived in Grimsby.

Hi R.
I've just clicked on the link and it seems we have mislaid tune #1 Got to the Devil etc.
Strange, as I thought I'd already fixed that one. I'll get onto it pronto.

So great that you're playing the tunes with Jeff...One of my first musical heroes....and it's time he and I had some more tunes together...now where did I put that mando....???
Please give him my best....I owe him a phone call or three....

Hi also to Mr Adams....and Mr Grieg....keep up all that great work...

Oh, yes I remember "Go to The Devil" went missing. Glad that it's now in place. There are so many good tunes in Gibbons. I've just played "Miss Twentyman's Delight - great. I've been enjoying 18. "The Unknown Quickstep", and 13. "The Duke of York's Quickstep". And I played 82. "Quickstep from Louth" at the Folk Club in Louth on Tuesday.
