Great mandolin reference for those who like Celtic music on the mandolin. It does need a CD reference to be complete so one can get the feel of it.

This is a good starter book. It's in both standard and tab notation, which is always helpful. There's a cross-section of various types of celtic music, but it's not nearly complete. If you're a beginner you may find it useful, though.

What "encyclopedia"? It's just anthology of Celtic tunes, whatever you might be thinking.

It's just a fake book, really. Single-note melodies in the treble with TAB underneath that. Chords are noted by letters above the treble. Some of the melodies are quite tricky.

I guess by encyclopedia they mean "big." Well, no argument there. The thing's about 144 pages.
