GUEST,SteveG Origins: Question about ballad provenance (23) RE: Origins: Question about ballad provenance 02 Dec 11

Baring Gould actually sent a lot of his ballads to Child. Unfortunately he cobbled some of these himself, 295B in particular, and 200. Child spotted the fake 200 but by the time he got to 295 he'd just about given up as he knew he was printing mainly fakes by then. Harvard has full copies of the various batches of ballads BG sent and the VWML has copies of these and the correspondence between them.
