Poetry Anonymous: Some British Ballads (ill. Rackham). v1. 19 Jan 2020
#1  doubleshuffle 01-19-2020, 05:52 AM
GrannyGrump's beautiful new uploads reminded me of an almost finished project I had in the virtual drawer:

Some British Ballads, a collection of traditional, well, British ballads, "several" of them taken from the famous Child collection, published anonymously and without year by Dodd, Mead & Co., New York.

The scan's uploader to the Internet Archive guesses it was published c. 1919.

A splendid little collection, IMO, made into a fantastic, unmissable one by the illustrations of the great Arthur Rackham.

Thanks again to GrannyGrump for giving us so many beautiful ebooks of his work! Glad to be able to contribute a little.
