Thread Name: Child Ballads on eBay
Subject: RE: Child Ballads on e-Bay
Probably a reasonable price for that edition (given that it's out of print, hardback, and that all editions of Child tend to sell for inflated prices), but the new Loomis House edition (assuming that all 5 volumes get published) will be much better value; beside the addition of music where it's available, the paper quality appears to be better than that used for Folklore Press publications in the 1950s.
