Far from the centers of life their amusements, their humors, their religion, their folk lore, their views of things had in them the flavor of the timber lands, the simplicity of childhood...”

8 Flanders, Helen Hartness; Editor. Ancient Ballads Traditionally Sung in New England: From the Flanders Ballad Collection, Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont. Compiled and Edited by Helen Hartness Flanders. Volume IV -- Ballads 250-295. Critical Analyses by Tristram P. Coffin. Music Annotations by Bruno Nettl.
Philadelphia, PA: University of Pennsylvania Press, n.d. 
Signed and Inscribed by the Author. Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 297 pp. Very Good+, with foxing (age darkened spotting); in a Good+ dust jacket with foxing and edgewear. From dust jacket: Ballads offer one of the most fascinating and revealing records of Man -- his deepest feelings and most profound experiences, his laughter and joys, his troubles and sorrows. There is no battle, no romance, no escapade, no tragedy recorded in song which is not rich both in its historical significance and in contemporary experience. A ballad is a link with past generations, traditions, and the basic character traits of a people, a region, or a country. The associations formed, the recollections stirred make the study of this form of music a rewarding experience. The first printed collection of ballads was made in 1723-25 and entitled simply Old Ballads... Since the publication of that first collection, interest in the ballad and demand for ballad texts have grown constantly. During the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, several hundred collections were published. Many of these collections have become classics in the field of balladry. Now with the publication of this fourth and final volume of the Ancient Ballads series, the Helen Hartness Flanders Collection will take its place with the other classics in the field. Volume IV contains Child ballads 250-295 with thirty-six versions of The Sweet Trinity, or The Golden Vanity, alone. This is representative of the completeness of the series and reflects the years of scholarship that went into the collecting, interviewing, scoring, and editing of the collection. With the analyses by Tristam P. Coffin and music annotations by Bruno Nettl, Mrs. Flanders' work in its entirety constitutes an invaluable source for the student of the ballad, as well as those interested in the related studies of musicology, literature, history, social sciences, and ethnology. Ancient Ballads Traditionally Sung in New England provides endless opportunity for both scholarly study and sheer fascination.

12 Prescott, Marjorie Wiggin. New England Son.
New York: Dood, Mead & Company, 1949. 
Octavo, green cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, viii, 276 pp. Near-Fine, with light rubbing to gilt letters on spine, in a chipped dust jacket. “This is the life of Albert Henry Wiggin, a parson's son who struggled his way out of Cousin Walter's hand-me-downs to the eventual presidency of the largest bank in the world. It is a story of hard work, close friendships and salty New England humor -- a uniquely American success story. It is a portrait of a remarkable man, the man who built the Chase Bank; but it is, more than that, the portrait of a golden era of American growth and optimism. You will share Mrs. Prescott's amusement at the recollection of her father's first job in Boston, when one of his daily duties was to make sure that a certain elderly party on Louisberg Square was likely to live long enough to pay off his bank debt. You will smile with her at the ironic Wiggin reply to a ceremonious cable from a banking group in London....”
