[SONGS]. The moon is on the water...Donald's return to Glencoe.

Durham. Walker, Printer, [s.d., c.1845]
Dimensions 190 x 260 mm. Single leaf broadside. Woodcut vignette to head. Printed in two columns, text within decorative border. A trifle creased, some chipping to margins.
A rare survival of a mid-eighteenth-century broadside issued by Durham-based printer George Walker (1807- 1888), featuring the popular romantic ballad 'The Moon is on the Water', and 'Donald's Return to Glencoe', a plaintive song of a Scotsman reunited with his love having been serving with the army overseas, seemingly during the Napoleonic Wars.

OCLC records copies at four locations (Durham, Guelph, Newcastle, and Texas); COPAC adds one further (NLS).
