Louisiana French Folk Songs. Romance Languages Series Number 1.

Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 1939. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Very Good plus copy in brown cloth binding with some rubbing to the spine lettering though still readable. The author worked both alone and with Allan Lomax collecting songs "in the field". Some of the lyrics in this rare volume are in Cajun French, some in "regular" French, and some in a curious combination of the two. All of which is to say that they are typical folksongs. Includes a Bibliography and an Index of Songs. Item #27182
