His first collection "A Selection of Music for the Highland Bagpipe" was published in 1876. The version presented here is from the third edition that appeared in 1923. MacPhee also publshed "A Complete Tutor for the Highland Bagpipe". Prior to 1895, the tutor was part of "A Selection of Music for the Highland Bagpipe" In 1895, the tutor was first published as separate book. The tutor version presented her is from the eighth edition, printed prior to 1899. His piobaireachd collection was published in 1879 as a single book. Beginning with the second edition (around 1885), the piobaireachd collection was published as two books, and version presented here is from a 1923 fourth edition
