Child's Ballads (Where to find)
Date: November 7, 2013
Does anyone know of a good edition of the Child's Ballads?
The 19th century editions of the books were in five volumes and contained only the lyrics.
I have seen a book about the ballads that includes some of the melodies written out small at the top of the page and the words at the bottom of the page.
I am looking for an edition with the words and music on the same lines.
Dover publishes the five volumes at about $30 apiece. But I don't know if they are reprints of the originals - in which case, they would be less than ideal (but workable).
