Thread Name: Dover edition of the Child Ballads
Subject: RE: Dover edition of the Child Ballads
I almost hate to say anything about this, but I see that Amazon has the Dover edition of The English and Scottish Popular Ballads on sale, all five volumes for $49.76, with free shipping in the U.S. Be sure to go through http://amazon.mudcat.org/, so Mudcat gets a cut.
I contacted Loomis House Press recently, and they said they're still working on volumes 4 and 5 of Child. They've had problems that have caused delays, but they still expect to complete the set. So, I'll resist the temptation of the Dover set and wait for Loomis House.
