Thread Name: Auctioning 1st Edition Child's Ballads
Subject: RE: AUCTIONING 1ST ED. CHILD'S BALLADS
That set is priced for book collectors, not students of folk songs. There are at least 3 reprints of the complete Child. I have a songbook with music of 1749, nice book but lousy songs. Worth something maybe to a book collector, bu not to anyone else.
