Got it, thanks. I think my original intention was just to direct folks to concertina.com and let them prowl through the site to find the book pdfs in hopes they would explore some of the site's other great features and articles along the way. But in this instance it's probably better to go directly to the books.

We’re almost there. Sorry to be a bug, You put the Maccann link on both the Maccann and Hayden tutors.

I realize that. My main purpose was to correct links that went nowhere, but I figured as long as I was there, I might as well point directly to the pdfs.

English Concertina tutor volume one by Pauline de Snoo has been updated some time ago. See www.concertina-academy.com. It comes with two CDs. With extra material to follow up on volume one. Pdfs, audio and video with more advanced exercises. Also free tuition for all systems on the website in order to give people the opportunity to see and hear and thus choose from the three different Concertina systems; English, Anglo or Duet. At the moment working on expanding a grading system for English Concertina in the UK.

I've recently scanned the "Simplicity Tutor for the English Concertina", originally published by Hawkes of London (which dates it prior to 1930, when Boosey and Hawkes merged). There is a scan already elsewhere on this site, but this appears to be a later edition, with an expanded selection of tunes at the end. It can be downloaded from:

 

Simplicity Tutor for the English Concertina

 

Thanks to Terry Evans for lending me the book to scan.

Apologies for truncating the title of the tune at the top of page 31; the missing title is "Come Back to Erin".
