You certainly shook me up when I read that Bronson was out of print. I have always meant to buy the set. I checked with several web booksellers and found "The Ballad as Song", by Bertrand Harris Bronson, ISBN: 0520013999, hard-cover edition, 324 pages, $38.50, from Barnes & Noble. Is this the same as the several-volume paper-back set that I have seen in friends' collections? I fear it is the condensed one mentioned above. In any case, is there a better place to order it? The above price doesn't include shipping and handling.
