Publisher    Oxford University Press, London, 1959, first edition.

Seller ID   16608

245 pp, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Black, white & brown illustrations. "...'Come listen to me, you gallants so free - All you that love mirth for to hear...' So the minstrels of the Middle Ages would begin, drawing their listeners about them to hear the tale they have to tell. It might be a rousing adventure of Robin Hood and his bold outlaws, or a ballad of true love; it might be the story of a Demon Lover who lured his lady away by flattery, or True Thomas's adventure in fairyland; it might be the sea ballad of 'Sir Patrick Spens' or the stirring battle story of 'Chevy Chase'. Many splendid ballads, such as these are gathered together here in this richly varied collection. The language has been skilfully modernized to avoid difficulties in reading but without losing any of the original flavour and vitality. Happy or sad, mysterious or romantic, heroic or purely mischievous, with their dancing, singing rhythms the ballads hold an enchantment that still delights and lifts the imagination as it did when they were first sung." Lyrics only, no musical notation. Light to moderate edge rubbing to boards, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, small bump at top corner of boards, faint small watermark at bottom of front board, ink gift inscription/date on title page. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling with small chips and tears - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, fading to spine color - lettering still very legible, two small light waterstains on inside of spine, small creases at top corner of rear flap, minor edge browning. VG-/G
