Edited by Warren Fahey and Graham Seal
A special centenary edition of Banjo Paterson’s important collection of Australian traditional ballads, with completely updated commentary on the songs.
Old Bush Songs, as it is universally known, has been through a number of editions and is recognised as a classic of Australian literature and folklore. First published by Angus & Robertson in 1905, it was subsequently revised and reprinted in over 15 editions plus adaptations, with the last edition published in 1983.
This centenary edition celebrates Paterson’s pioneering role and documents the history of the book and its orginal songs. It includes new material, illustrations and photographs, as well as background information that helps bring these old songs to life for a modern readership.
