This is a collection of 2,448 quarter peal compositions, from doubles to sixteen, with a variety of methods, composers, styles, musical properties, and other goals represented. Many of the callings in this collection are well known; some even appear in recent editions of the Diary. Others are less well known. Some are exceedingly simple, some complex.

The collection is organized principally by stage, in some cases subdivided by method, kind of method, or number of methods used in spliced. When there are variations on a composition of spliced using different numbers of methods, the composition appears in the section corresponding to the greatest number of methods used.

There is a section dedicated to date touches, where all touches of the relevant length are gathered together, without regard to their stage. All such date touches also appear in the natural position in the main body of the collection.

There is also a section dedicated to 3Ks, touches of length 3,000 or greater, but less than 5,000.

There is a list of recent additions to the collection, as well as indices listing all the compositions alphabetically by composer, and by length.
