In 101 & 99 More there are many dances that had been previously published by
the Society, which is why the Miscellanies are smaller. They only contain
those dances which were not already published. Miscellany 1 contains a total
of 39 dances, including the 12 dances from Introducing which had not been
published elsewhere - the remainder (apart from 3) were from 101.

The difference in Jessie's Hornpipe had been noticed by the time I went up
to St Andrews in 1971, as I can remember Duncan Macleod commenting on it. (I
think his reaction was, "so now we have two official ways of performing the
dance".) All these years later, because 101 is no longer in print, we only
have the RSCDS Book 8 version, and when this was reprinted in 1981 it still
clearly indicated a R Sh pass for both dancers.
