Preface and Introduction by Diamond Jenness and an Introductory Section on 'Music of Songs' by Helen Roberts. This study collects Dance Songs from the Copper Eskimos and from surrounding regions: Mackenzie River, Inland Hudson Bay, and Point Hope, Alaska. Different versions of the same song are identified in a separate chapter (pp. 403 ff.). The material provides a transliteration of the song, thereby preserving the original cadence, a translation and a musical score. The latter is augmented by musical analysis by tonality. Green buckram with gilt titles and arctic map on front boards; minor edgewear at the extremities; clean internally in tight binding. Uncommon in clothbound editions. [Hand, R. 168, listing only the edition in wrappers; Murdock, Ethnographic Bibliography of North America, 3rd Ed. p. 12.]
