Faber have been issuing a few old favourites in their new Faber Finds imprint. Just the ticket for the season I would have thought; nothing like being snuggled up in front of the telly with a good book. Here's a few to be going on with:

George Ewart Evans - Horse Power and Magic:

A. L. Lloyd - Folk Song in England

James Reeves - The Idiom of the People

They DO look interesting, don't they? I know the first of the James Reeves books - but not the second. They won't smell the same as an old hardback copy - but much nicer than an online version!

Regards

The other two titles have already been discussed on this site. Regarding George Ewart Evans, all his folk life studies/oral histories are well worth reading and I note that his From Mouths of Men is also on the Faber Finds site. In fact the only book of Evans' that I wouldn't recommend, although it too has been re-published by FF, is Acky. It just proves that Evans was a far better ethnographer than a short story writer.

Also books from Roy Palmer and Maud Karpeles; and Reeves, Everlasting Circle, come to that.
