Ballads and Songs of the Peasantry of England [George MacDonald's copy; with additional MacDonald family provenance]

London: Charles Griffin and Co., [undated, circa 1860s, adverts dated 1864]. From the library of George MacDonald with his bookplate to the front pastedown.

In addition to MacDonald's ownership, this volume comes from the library of Maude Egerton King with her bookplate on the flyleaf. Ms. King was a friend of Greville Macdonald (and niece of George MacDonald by marriage), the son of George Macdonald, and it appears to have come into her possession in 1906, one year after George MacDonald's passing. Inscription to Ms. King, in what appears to be Greville MacDonald's hand, dated 1906.
