214 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H). "In the secluded farms and fishing villages of the Maritimes are the people who have kept Canada's favourite folk songs alive over the years. It was to them that Helen Creighton turned during her extensive search for the native songs that have been passed through generations of Maritimers. With musical transcriptions and chord symbols by Kenneth Peacock, the resulting collection of more than one hundred lyrics faithfully retains the authentic rythms and colour of Canada's Atlantic coast. Haunting Negro spirituals of Nova Scotia, simple Scottish love songs, and rollicking English sea chanties, all written in the native musical vernacular, are but some of the folk songs represented here for the enjoyment of music lovers." Interior - Christmas label on first page, bump to top corner of pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - very light edge wear, small area of surface paper loss at bottom corner of front cover, very light browning, very tiny foxing marks on front cover, a few faint scuff marks on front cover, bump to top corner of covers, very light rubbing.
