Young Research Library, UCLA.UCLA Catalog Record IDUCLA Catalog Record ID: 4232730HistoryBroadside ballads provided lyrics to popular songs, and were sold cheaply on individual sheets of paper. While the lyricswere often new, the tunes would have been familiar to all. As a widely circulating form of popular literature, ballads can bea useful resource for the study of the history of literacy and can also be of interest to those studying the history of printing.Ballads traditionally addressed themes from everyday experience in both urban and rural communities. They thus provideimportant source material for social history and the history of popular culture.Scope and ContentThis collection contains approximately 2,000 English, Irish, and American broadsides from the nineteenth century, includinga large number of broadsides from the Catnach Press as well as some from women printers (especially Anne Ryle andElizabeth Hodges, with a few by Ann Birt). Many of the ballads in this collection deal with common issues in family life,including courtship and marriage, domestic disputes, and the departure and return of young sailors. The collection includesexamples of drinking songs, love songs, and patriotic songs. It offers many variants of traditional favorites, such as"Lannigan's Ball" and "John Barleycorn". The collection also represents ballads as sources of information and commentaryon current events of local, national and international significance. Of the holdings in English ballads, many report on wars,economic conditions, and the activities of the monarchy. Land tenure, the Fenians, and other protests of English rulefeature prominently in the collection's Irish ballads. A major theme of the American ballads is the Civil War (1861-1865).Organization and ArrangementArranged in the following series:

    1. England, 1750-ca. 1899 (6 boxes)2. Ireland, ca. 1828-1869 (2 boxes)3. United States, ca. 1824-1887 (2 boxes).
