The Kilberry Book of Ceol Mor, compiled by Archibald Campbell, 1948 First edition
Every piper worth his salt knows of or owns “The Kilberry Book.” It contains 118 piobaireachds, compiled by Archibald Campbell of Kilberry (1877-1963) the man who was the mainstay of the Piobaireachd Society through its formative years and up until his death.
Most will know of the book with its burgundy cover, the last tune being “Lament for Alasdair Dearg MacDonell of Glengarry,” but the first edition was forest green and ended with “Lord Lovat’s Lament.” Four more tunes were added in later editions.
Measuring 10.5” by 14” this copy is in superb condition, with some minor fraying along the edges of the cover. To see the Table of Contents, click here.
