The concertina has the four middle rows of a McCann, left hand one octave starting with C above middle C and only Bb as an accidental. Right hand starting with that Bb up one octave to A with three notes overlap. There is an extra Fsharp in that octave where the high B should be and an Eb in the place of the low A.

 

Allthough a very small instrument for a duet (I have never heard of another)you can play duet music in C and pieces with a very limited range in F, G, Bb and the related minors.

There are a few listed in the Wheatstone ledgers, but they're quite rare.

And I know that you know the difference between an English and a duet, so the treble English was simply for size comparison, yes? :)

Yes, of course. If you compare the keyes of the two concertinas you can see that the keyes of the outside rows of the miniture are not in line with the inside rows like they are on english concertinas.
