Native American Balladry : A Descriptive Study and a Bibliogaphical Syllabus. Revised edition
Laws, G. Malcolm Jr.

Philadelphia The American Folklore Society 1975 Later printing of revised 1964 edition Octavo (standard size). Slight wear to edges and corners of boards. 298 p. w/ footnotes, bibliography, index of ballads and songs. Despite the title, this is a work noting home grown American ballads, not those of native peoples. About half of the work is scholarly study, the other half a syllabus listing ballds on war, cowboys and pioneers, lumberjacks, sailors and the sea, criminals and outlaws, murder, tragedies and disasters, "negros", and misc topics. Very good Hardcover (Item ID: 17196)
