Thread Name: Loomis House Press - Child Ballads New Edition
Subject: Child Ballads Vol. 4 from Loomis House
Hi Folks,

We just received this message from Loomis House Press.


Loomis House Press is pleased to announce that Volume 4 of our corrected edition of Francis James Child's The English and Scottish Popular ballads is now available for purchase from our website at

The price is $24.95 for the paperbound edition, and $34.95 for the
library-quality clothbound edition.

This title will be available online _only_ from our store for about a month before being made available through other online merchants such as Amazon, because, frankly, we don't make much money on Amazon sales, and we need to make just a little money to keep this project afloat.

If you wish to support your local independent bookstore, please do. They can order our titles if you give them the ISBN numbers found on our website.

Please feel free to forward this message to any mailing lists or newsgroups where it might be of interest.

We are actively working on Volume 5, and hope to release it more quickly than the last volume. Thank you to everyone who has provided continuing support and encouragement for this project.

Loomis House Press


Although the Dover paperback volumes are back in print, I think this set is well worth having.
