From the notes on the manuscript by Matt Seattle and taken from the Farne website:-

This tune book is part of the Cocks Collection and is now in the Northumberland Record Office at Gosforth, with photocopies at the Black Gate and Morpeth Chantry. The book is a real miscellany of styles, and covers the gamut of 19th century light music. It is anonymous, and evidently the work of several different hands, but nevertheless has some traditional items of interest, including some rare and unique tunes. Only a selection is given here, with the 'ballroom' material omitted.
