Item Description: David Nutt, 1907. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. London: David Nutt, for the Folk-Lore Society, 1907. First Edition. Octavo (9" x 6"); xxxviii, 288pp. Brown cloth with black and gilt stamping. Covers are soiled and smudged with some scuffing to joints and rubbing/bumping along edges and corners. Split starting to show between front endpapers and book opens easily at boards and to several gatherings, but binding is holding soundly. Heavy foxing to first and last few pages, clearing up to just expected toning for the majority of the text. Pages are unmarked. Presentation inscription on series title page which I cannot make out, (G.J. Bidds?), nor can I make out the pencil attribution by a prior bookseller (Newman Bidder?). My guess would be either a member of the Folklore Society, but I cannot say for sure. [AB-61]. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1488229227927

Octavo, original publisher's brick red/brown cloth with gilt and black decoration and gilt spine titles. Untrimmed fore edge. 288pp. A publication of the Folk Lore Society for Collecting and Printing Relics of Popular Antiquities. No. LV. Collected and edited by Walter Jekyll with an introduction by Alice Werner and appendices on Traces of African Melody In Jamaica by C.S. Myers and on English Airs And Motifs In Jamaica by Lucy E. Broadwood. One of the best of the Folk Lore Society series. Full of the simple associative tunes and lyrics of a people whose songs and song subjects were "primitive" in the very best sense of the world and which express a truly different view on the world. This volume is very clean and tight with bright gilt initials of the Fold Lore Society and clear black decorative lines. Spine gilt is clear but slightly dulled. Interior is very fresh and crisp. This is an exlibrary copy but not heavily marked. Blanked bookplate on front pastedown and sticker remains on rear pastedown. A few stamps and notations to half title page and small label on spine. Despite the library markings a very handsome and well preserved copy of this desirable title. SCARCE. Bookseller Inventory # 05560
