Summary

Collection of seven sonatas (the seventh appears to be incomplete due to several leaves that are lacking) and ten folk songs, with several pages discussing aspects of music theory such as concords and discords (p. 1-5), and several untitled pages of notation. Consists of 47 pages written in one direction followed by 9 pages written in the other direction and starting from the opposite end of the book. Bookseller's description notes that the label on the inside lower cover (Parham, Sussex) refers to Parham House in Sussex and makes it possible that this book was in the collection of Sir Cecil Bishopp or one of his relatives.
