About this Item

Quarto. 303pp. (1). Dark blue-grey cloth boards with white lettering on spine. The work discusses the concept of the ballad as a "mediaevil genre" and examines the Hungarian ballads specifically for their "particular significance. Owing to the Hungarians' position among the other peoples and to their mediaeval history, the Hungarian material conceals within itself many connections which throw new light on important aspects of the history, spread and theory of the genre." The book includes charts, maps, and b&w photographic reproductions of relevant medieval artwork & pages from illuminated manuscripts. 7 additional folded tables & charts located in a pouch at interior back cover. Binding with light scratching, smudging and minor water stains at front and back cover. Head and tail of spine lightly bumped. Interior with small dealer's sticker at bottom of interior front cover. Some pages with annotations and underlining in pencil. Binding in overall good+, interior in very good- condition. Bookseller Inventory # 40694
