The tune and country dance directions were printed by London publisher John Young in all four editions of his Second Volume of the Dancing Master (1710-1728). It also was printed by Walsh & Randall in The New Country Dancing Master...Second Book (London, 1710), and in Walsh & Hare's The Second Book of the Compleat Country Dancing-Master (London, 1719). In Young's third and fourth editions (1718 & 1728), "Bollinbrook's Flight" [1] was the primary title, and "Burgundy Flight" reduced to an alternate title.
