This great achievement seems destined to endure as long as the ballads themselves; few scholars have left so lasting a monument.'--Dictionary of American Biography Published between 1882 and 1898, Professor Child's study of popular ballads in the English language was the first comprehensive survey of all extant ballads and their known variants. Its absolute fidelity to the original texts, together with Child's invaluable commentary on each ballad, make it an unsurpassed resource. Volume V comprises Parts IX and X of the original set. Part IX contains ballads 266-305, including 'Scarborough Fair' and 'The Queen of Scotland.' Part X features several bibliographical listings (totaling nearly 3,000 sources), indexes to the whole set, a glossary, selections of music to some of the ballads, and other supplementary information, including Walter Morris Hart's essay, 'Professor Child and the Ballad.' Unabridged republication of the works originally published between 1882 and 1898.
