Listing Description Copyright © 2001, 2005, 2007, 2011 Gail Beebe, All Rights Reserved

NEW ENGLAND FOLKLORE: The Stories, Legends, Tall Tales, Traditions, Ballads and Songs of the American Yankee Folk People. Edited by BA Botkin.

The Treasury of New England Folklore is a huge book with over 576 Stories and 50 Songs with the music scores.

Copyright 1947 by Crown publishers, American Legacy Press. This is the 1965 revised edition. This copy of the book is the 1989 reprint.

DESCRIPTION OF CONDITION - 618 pages with detailed footnotes, references and index. Large, heavy, hard cover book with dark blue leatherette cover with gold lettering and a pictorial insert. This Hardcover book is in very good, strong condition. The cover spine is scraped on the back upper corner and I found a bit of leftover glue from an inventory label on the spine. Pages are very good. No tears, folds, highlighting or writing. This very interesting book would be a great addition for your family or a friends' book collection.

This is a real treasure for people who collect United States Americana literature about the social life and customs in the New England states of Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Connecticut.

The book was compiled and edited by B.A. Botkin. The late Benjamin Botkin was one of America's most eminent folklorists. He served as folklore expert for the Library of Congress and as President of the American Folklore Society. The detailed footnotes in the book are an invaluable bibliography to folklorists and researchers.

These are the Yankees - the salty, shrewd, thrifty, ingenious, laconic, crotchety, pixilated, God Fearing people of New England. These are the customs they preserve and the traditions they treasure, the stories they tell and the songs they sing, their myths and mythology in folk tale and folk speech. These are their heroes and sages, showmen and tricksters, eccentrics and strong men - Israel Putnam, Ethan Allen, Timothy Dexter, P.T. Barnum, Calvin Coolidge, and a host of local characters about whom a body of lively anecdote and colorful legend has grown up. Filled with the zest and sparkle of the woods and sea, the homely wisdom and craft spirit, of farm and village, the know how of the country store and factory, the mystery and magic of witchcraft and superstition, the neighborly fun of rural games, festivals and frolics, the thrills and yarns of hunting and fishing, "A Treasury of New England Folklore" is a compendium of all that's New England.

I am not keyword spamming. The contents and indexes of this book are important for bidders to see what is included in this extensive book. I might have skipped or left out some names or places so please email me if you still need further information.
