Not my usual 'I don't know why this isn't more popular' review! Songs for the Philogists was printed as an exercise in using a printing press ... and some of the copyright owners objected, so there was limited distribution. The copies which remained were destroyed by a bomb in WWII ... so it's not surprising that so few copies remain in existence.

I have, with some reservation, given this 3.5 stars. The reservation is that these are _songs_ and I don't know most of the tunes referred to, so have no way of judging how good they are as lyrics, even when I understand the language they are written in.... ( )
