202 pp, lg 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w drawings, music notation. Bilingual lyrics (French/English), remainder of text English only. "Marius Barbeau has collected here forty-two jongleur and voyageur songs which he recorded between 1916 and 1925 from folksingers along the St. Lawrence River. These are still sung, mostly in the Province of Quebec, but are also well known to emigrant French-Canadians throughout New England, northern Michigan and Louisiana. In addition to the melodies and complete French texts of the songs, Dr. Barbeau has included singable interpretations (not literal translations) in English. Of interest to laymen and folklorists alike are his commentaries on each song - where it was recorded, its history, uses, and versions known in France - as well as a list of references and sources for each." Tiny area of wear at top corner of rear board, tiny pen mark/dint at fore-edge of pages 86-90, small soft wrinkle at fore-edge of allpages up to page 10, diagonal line impression from rear pastedown on last few pages. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, three tiny closed tears with creases, light fading to spine color, tiny scuff on spine, light rubbing and soiling - mainly on rear panel.
