Anyone interested in broadside ballads may like to know that the on-line mail-order book sellers 'Post Script Books' (www.psbooks.co.uk) are currently selling the book 'Broadside Ballads from the Pepys Collection - A Selection of Texts, Approaches, and Recordings', edited by Patricia Fumerton for £14.99 (plus £2 p&p). It originally retailed for £75.00. Fascinating book which contains numerous blackletter broadside illustrations. It also comes with 2 CDs.

Hi Mike
Thanks for the heads up but all of the Pepys Ballads are available on the Santa Barbara University website, English Ballads, along with all the Roxburghe, Euing and others, all in various formats. Well worth a look. I believe some recordings are also available there. The 5 volume set of Pepys was remaindered along with an Index volume and a Catalogue volume some years ago, which I bought. I suppose they are now redundant.

Thanks for sharing that Mike.

What are the 20 essays like? Interesting?
I like to have songs these in book form (even though you can find them online) - just much more browsable and user-friendly I find.

Some other interesting discounted books on that site in the music category on lots of folk related topics (including by Ruth Crawford Seeger and her daughter Peggy's recent autobiography, some quite niche titles on bagpiping too!)

Had a scout around online. There is a list of contents up there and the chapter on sea songs is available. The first half dozen chapters look useful but the rest just give a cursory overview of Pepys's different categories of song, obviously with numerous examples but these are online anyway. The whole book is like a companion to the website. The tunes are the first couple of verses of some of the songs, useful if you want to know what some of the tunes sound like, but the dots are all presumably available in Simpson.

Here's a US link. Can't tell if the two CDs are available, but the $15.82 prices is good.

Joe, I would be surprised if the two CDs are not included in America. In my copy both CDs are attached to the inside covers, so would expect the same in America.
