Default Music Notebook - 8.5x5.5" landscape format

Greetings,

Can anyone help me locate a music notebook in an 8.5x5.5" landscape format? I've looked high and low and can't find any.

I have a tranche of used notebooks of this type from the early 20th century, 1900 through WWI or so, mostly from pipers of the HLI, and the format, the size, seems just perfect. They are five staves per page, with sewn bindings and paper-covered cardboard soft covers.

Thanks very much.

Thanks for your reply! No, that's not it. I actually really like the Archives paper. I just purchased one of these, with the non-spiral binding; just received it yesterday. It's a bit too high, and not wide enough.

Here's a bit more on what I seek. The old books I have are 9 1/2 x 5 11/16" (235 x 145mm). There are six staves per page, with a wide margin atop.

Well... push come to shove... perhaps... off to a
good... stationary store... obtain those materials
that speak the most closely to you... and... then...
hand-craft... that which you wish to have... :)

Just a thought...

As crazy as it may sound, I've considered making my own; or, more precisely, having them made. But first I thought I'd find out if they exist anywhere. Maybe in Scotland?

I'd look for A5 size books; not sure how available metric sizes are over there but someone must carry them. Easy enough to find in six or eight staff books.

I found this and ordered a couple. It's a bit smaller than what I wanted, at 7 x 4 1/2", but it's the basic idea. $4.75 each, plus the dreaded postage. I'll let you know how it is when I receive it.
