The current facsimile collects the very Novice songbook erótic-sentimental and flamenco of Juan Manuel Villén, a complete synopsis of malagueñas, peteneras, rondeñas, soleares and fandangos. ''Many centuries ago, they have been writing and publishing; there is no thinking, thought, accident neither possible success in the human life that have not been described in songs by the way of seguidillas, or verses of other kind. Nevertheless, maybe we can find something new in my songbook, because, a time ago, I have been moving my impressions to paper according to what have occurred or the events that have let them possible. So, many of the couplets or their series have a completely historic character''. In this very curious work of 1887, the author as well as compiling a great number of songs where he gathers the feeling of that period, he also included a brief dictionary of words commonly used by the gypsies.
