Book Description Grosset & Dunlap, New York, 1906., 1906. Hardcover. Condition: Good. First ed. thus, with gauffered edges; reprint of the 1896 ed.; 185 p., clean and unmarked (not ex-lib., no owner's signature or book seller's label); end papers show foxing and the strong, fine-quality paper is somewhat age-toned; light-green pictorial boards with red and dark green lettering and representation of a harpist wearing a somewhat mottled red cape show rubbing at crown and foot of spine, and light bumping of edges. This is still a beautiful book: the exquisite drawings and vignettes by the once greatly celebrated artist George Wharton Edwards resemble medieval woodcuts; the introduction by the editor and critic Hamilton W. Mabie is informative and insightful; the selection of the ballads is choice. Along with the "Chevy Chase," "The Banks of Yarrow," as well as many Robin Hood ballads, are some that were made beloved in twentieth-century America in renditions by Joan Baez ("Barbara Allen' and "The Demon Lover", here "Barbara Allen's Cruelty" and "The Fause Lover") and Burl Ives ("Waly Waly Love Be Bonnie"). There are 26 ballads in this collection. Seller Inventory # SKU1015224
