Market Finds No 22

A Dorset Book Of Folk Songs - published by The English Folk Dance & Song Society in 1948 and illustrated by Joyce Davey.

I think I may have said before that some market finds are just waiting to be found. Right time, right place and maybe the right person. This is one such find. A rummage in a box of ephemera under a table and you just don't know what might turn up. The other day it was this..........."how much squire?" says I, "give us a quid" says he. Lovely. A delightful small booklet with most pleasing covers. Here is a selection of the contents and i'll bid you good health to the barley mow.

Are the songbirds the covers or the endpapers Dickie? Lovely illustrations too.

Off perch fishing now.

They are on the covers John (front & back), lovely little booklet - I am always amazed such things survive. Enjoy the Sgt Stripey's! TTFN Dickie
