Hand-written and hand-illustrated folksong book with music and lyrics in both German and English

Germany or Pennsylvania Dutch Country: 1930s. Hardcover. This 4.5” x 6” hardcover notebook contains 140 pages of both traditional and folk songs—music and lyrics--many related to camping or hiking. 55 of the songs are German, nine are American, and three are French. There is an index in the rear. Exceptionally well done and in very nice shape; one page has four water spots. The American songs include Clementine, Home on the Range, Blow the Man Down, Kookaburra, and Swing Low Sweet Chariot. The German songs include De Hamborger Veermaster, Blankenstein Husar, Buben im Feuerkreise, Kameraden wir marschieren, Flamme empor, and Die Regenfrau. The French songs include Alouette. Quite a well done, unique song book that must have taken many, many hours to create. Very good. Item #009208
