Subject: Folklore: NAmerica Child ballads book
From: GUEST,Philippa
Date: 04 Dec 10 - 11:54 AM

can anyone identify the book I had as a teenager. Four (5?) volume set of Child Ballads collected in N America (Canada I think, and I think Edith Fowke the collator, though I know Helen Creighton did similar work) Title and publisher?

The English and Scottish Popular Ballads Edited by Francis James Child.
My one is a Dover Edition but you can find it online here - just scroll down about 1/3 of the way.

I think the 4 vol set you are thinking of is
Helen Hartness Flanders
Ancient Ballads Traditionally Sung in New England.
University of Pennsylvania Press 1960
Tristram P Coffin and Bruno Nettl were involved.

Child's own ESPB mentioned above is mainly those collected in England and Scotland.

Very good they are too. One day I may even find time to sing one or two of them!!

There is also a collection [single volume] called the Minstrelsy of Maine by Eckstrom [and, I believe, Hyde] which is also unobtaineum.

I just checked on line. Minstrelsy of Maine is available on line at reasonable prices, all less than $100.
