Abstract:

Francis James Child's English and Scottish Popular Ballads, published in 10 parts from 1882-1898, contained the texts and variants of 305 extant themes written down between the thirteenth and nineteenth centuries Unsurpassed in its presentation of texts, this exhaustive collection devoted little attention to the ballad music, a want that filled by Bertrand Harris Bronson in his four volume traditional tunes of the child ballad. The present book is an abridged, one volume edition of that work, setting forth music and text for proven examples of oral tradition, with a new comprehensive introduction. It convenient format makes readily available to students and scholars the materials for a study of the Child Ballads as they have been preserved in the British America sinning tradition-Taken from back of book.
