Thread Name: Bronson tunes - Child Ballads
Subject: RE: Bronson's tunes
Child's collection is out of copyright, but whether any publisher would be prepared to underwrite a re-issue is a difficult question; at the moment I should say probably not, given the relatively small demand likely and the costs involved.  As Guest points out, Bronson's collection would still be in copyright.  One-off paperback reprints of the first two volumes can be had from  Books On Demand  for $156.00 (vol.1) and $181.40 (vol.2), but that's probably the closest to republication -and the cheapest price- they are likely to get for the time being; again, costs are such that a new issue just isn't an economic proposition for an unsubsidised publisher.
