Eighteenth century octavo volume in private hands, which belonged originally to Mariska Rösza-Coutan (see the uploader's talk page). It is obviously the handbook or notebook or repertoire of a travelling musician. The handwriting sometimes differs, which would lead one to assume this booklet changed hands now and then, or was passed on by its original owner. Since Mariska lived in central France (Moulins), one can also assume this collection was put to good use in the same area or close by, i.e.the Auvergne, since some of the ditties are bourrées.
