Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Gabalundi(?) Man / Gaberlunzie Man
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Gaberlunzie Man
Yes, lyrics I posted are noted in Contemplator as those of Child 279 Appendix.
Ramsay's Tea Table Miscellany, 1724, in which The Gaberlunzie Man first appeared, is known in only two copies, one at Yale, the other at the Huntington Library in California. However, it had gone through 14 editions by 1876 (Glasgow, E. Forrester). This is a two-volume set. Anyone have it?
This research library has many rare books of songs. Their catalogue is on line at Huntington
