Flagstaff: Northern Arizona Creative Printers, 1979. Pamphlet. 16p., professionally laid out and printed, softbound in 11x8.5 inch stapled decorated wraps. Front cover has a three-inch split at the tail that has caused textblock to escape its lower staple, expect crimping and abrasion along spinefold, cover also bears a sticker apparently placed to cancel incorrect info. Text per se is fastened soundly and is quite clean; a readable, handleable item. Dance contests are the main attraction, at least as far as the public and publicity are involved.

Tom Lehrer's Second Song Book. Piano Transcriptions by Frank Metis, Illustrations by Ted Scheel

By Lehrer, Tom

New York: Crown Publishers, Inc, 1968. Hardcover. 64p., musical notation and lyrics throughout on alkaline untoned paperstock, hardbound in 10x7 inch papered boards and dust jacket. Nice copy, firm, flat and square, top edge shows faintest fading, there's an ownership signature on the front free pastedown, the unclipped jacket is edgeworn but now enclosed in an archival-grade brodart to size. First edition of this bound collection, publisher Crown indicates that status by omission: only subsequent impressions are noted. FYI, a number of these compositions don't get much play nowadays, his mockery of folk music for instance, doesn't have much bite. All the spot-ons make up for the occasional blind spot.

Law School Association Lyrics

Law School Association Lyrics

By Prosser, William L., contributor and compiler

n.p.: [Association of American Law Schools], 1960. Pamphlet. 90p., pamphlet, neatly printed on coated paperstock and stapled into 8.5x5.5 inch orange wraps. Extensive collection, the lyrics printed as poetry without musical notation, music cued by familiar song titles printed with the parody (it is usually a case of parody and lampoon). Both front and back covers are irregularly sunned, dust-soiled and lightly stained. Entirely clean within, and quite sound. Jocular stuff gotten up for the association's Christmas get-togethers. "Don't hit your professor with a shovel / It makes a bad impression on his mind" a lesser effort here. But others have some weight: "Ain't Gonna Need This Job" (to the tune of This Ole House) goes, "This old job is pretty lousy / This old job is full of grief, / And this measley little law school, / I will leave it with relief... Ain't gonna need this job no longer, / I'm a-gettin' ready to be a judge" --Tom Lehrer almost certainly an influence in this period.

Goodnight, Irene. Introduced and featured by The Weavers and Gordon Jenkins on Decca Records

By Ledbetter, Huddie, and John Lomax, words and music

New York: Spencer Music Corp, 1950. Sheet_music. Single folio leaf printed and folded to make a standard sheet-music item, cover photo-portrait of the Weavers ensemble with an inset of Gordon Jenkins. Find an inconspicuous rubberstamp of Salt Lake City distributor, a small corner-crease, a dot of ink (printer's error) and faint toning. No marks, a good clean copy. Five stanzas are printed of this pretty song which point up how sentimental and unsentimental both; rather confusingly one stanza addresses an errant husband, others an errant wife, another suggests no marriage took place. Lies were told, and morphine figures in as a suicide method. First copyrighted in 1936. Ledbetter's guitar got him out of a very nasty prison.

"I'd love to get you ON A SLOW BOAT TO CHI-NA, All to myself, a-lone. Get you and keep you in my arms ev-er-more.. Out on the briny, with a moon big and shiny.." Emptor to expect just the one stanza; "There is no verse to this song, 'Cause I don't want to wait a mo-ment too long..

Van McNeal's predilection for popular song gives a vapid cast to the poems, as does his peculiarly constructed last name; while whoever wrote the cover blurb describes him as "one of this nations's [sic] most eminent poets and philosophers
