Thread Name: John Brune FolkSong collector
Subject: RE: John Brune FolkSong collector
My understanding was that volume 2 never appeared. Volume 1 was published in 1965, as I've already said; but there was an earlier printing of c.39 pages privately issued in 1959 or 1960; perhaps McGrath has a copy of that. Apparently only 75 copies were made; Brune's middle name is, incidentally, revealed as Anatole.

My copy (1965) appears to be the same as Dick's, at any rate; though a previous owner has for some reason drawn a moustache on the cover picture.

I've wondered occasionally what the fake song was that John Brune concocted, and whether Sheila remembers any of it.
