Scope and content

This booklet was produced by the EFDSS (English Folk Dance and Song Society). Sadly, there is no date anywhere in the booklet but prices are in pre decimal coinage and the photograph of the Bampton Morris dancers was taken in 1947. That does not mean the booklet was printed in that year, simply it was a print the EFDSS liked.
The topics covered include
Sword dances
Gothland Plough Stots
Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
Jolly Jacks of Andover
William Kimber from Headington
Bampton Morris
The Hobby Horse festivals
Helston Furry
Bacup Coconut Dancers
Thaxted Morris dancers
Royton Morris Men
