Abstract

The Cecil Sharp Library of the English Folk Dance and Song Society is a collection of books, periodicals, pamphlets, manuscripts, pictorial material, and sound‐recordings enlarging the small but valuable collections of books and photographs bequeathed by Cecil Sharp to the English Folk Dance Society which he had founded in 1911, and of manuscripts, sound‐recordings, and books acquired from the Folk Song Society, founded in 1898, on the amalgamation of both bodies twenty years ago, together with a small museum of traditional costumes, regalia, and musical instruments.
