First published at the beginning of the 19th century(i.e. about 200 years ago) by William Wright of High Bridge, Newcastle, The contents of the book are reputed to be drawn fom the repertoire of John Peacock, one of the last of the Newcastle Waits. Its publication was intended (even at that time) the instrument and tunes from passing out of use. 3 copies of this book survive and one of these was used to produce a facsimile which was published by the NPS in 1980. This fascinating book certainly helped to provoke interest in these old tunes, but it was considered difficult to read (deservedly). The current edition has been typeset in the style of current society publications, and facsimile representations of original pages have been included for illustrative purposes.
