Under what listing? I am just masochistic enough to wanna see! And, is this Child, or Bronsons?

Child English Scottish Ballads full set in HC. Now at $227.50. 1956 Folklore Press edition. Ends Nov. 09, 2:20 PM PST. I put Child Ballads in the blank and it came up.
The consigner gives a detailed description.

Yes, the reserve of $298 has been met.

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.

I've seen the Loomis House edition, and it looks good. You can also get it from Dick Greenhaus at Camsco - just send a personal message to Dick.

The one I saw was the Dover edition, 5 volumes - same as mine, which I bought about 1981 new.

In my excitement about the clicky I got the text wrong! should be 'not' rather than 'nor'....

The URL was correct.

Here is your original link. I tried making a link to the photo on the page, but it just opens this page again.

With a starting bid of $100, I think I'd choose to get the Loomis House Edition throught Dick Greenhaus at Camsco, or direct from Loomis House. Volume 2 is available now, about $25 paperback and $35 hardcover - but Dick can get if for you cheaper.
