Thread Name: Origins: Lovely Joan
Subject: RE: Origins: Lovely Joan
Most of the versions I have are from the Madden Collection which isn''t yet online. There are probably plenty of versions on the Bodleian Broadside Ballads website. The only one I have a copy of is printed by Jacques of Manchester and it's the 10-stanza version, ref. Harding B11 (2227), but just put Lovely Joan into the search engine and see what you get. If you don't get what you want come back to me and I'll post the 12 st version.
Incidentally Haly of Cork printed a 7 st version titled 'A New Song called Lovely Joan'.
