8 Ashton, John Modern Street Ballads
Benjamin Blom 1968 Hardcover Very Good 
1968 hardcover reprint of the 1888 original. Clothbound, with pictorial cover. No marks or writing to book. Faint signs of age; no real signs of handling. No dust jacket (doubt if one was issued.) 405 pages. Tight text block, square corners.

The material in the book dates from the first half of the 19th century. When we think of folk ballads, we tend to think of familiar classics found in juvenile literature: songs that have been adapted, performed, and memorized for centuries, handed down through the generations. But browsing through this book will remind you, for every timeless “Barbara Allen” there were dozens of ditties hastily composed and soon forgotten. And yet, tossed-off hack jobs though some of these pieces may be, all of them provide a revealing glimpse into the daily concerns of the average British citizen of the period. Thank goodness someone determined to record the ephemera.

18 Berlin, Isaiah The Proper Study of Mankind: An Anthology of Essays
Farrar, Straus & Giroux 1997 0965607992 / 9780965607995 Paperback Very Good 
Clean softcover, with no marks or writing in book. Almost like new, but there is a trace of light wear to corners. 704 pages.

This selection of the best of Latvian-born British philosopher Isaiah Berlin's essays represents the full range of his work. The opening sections include Berlin's defence of philosophy and history against assimilation to the methods of science; his essays on liberty, which laid a foundation for subsequent discussion; and his exposition of his most distinctive doctrine - pluralism - which recognizes that equally good ultimate values may come into conflict. What follows are studies of Machiavelli, Vico and Herder, essays on Russian writers, and portraits of important contemporaries from Akhmatova and Pasternak to Churchill and Roosevelt. This collection encapsulates the principle movements that characterize the modern age.
