The Study of American Folklore by Jan Harold Brunvand is a 620-page cloth-bound hardcover published in 1986 by W.W. Norton & Company. There is foxing to the top edge and light shelf wear to the dust jacket. Else, the condition is very good.
Since its first publication in 1968 The Study of American Folklore has remained, year after year, the first choice of instructors teaching the introductory folklore course to undergraduates. For the Third Edition the author, the distinguished folklorist Jan Harold Brunvand, has once again vigorously revised his text to reflect the needs of today's courses.ISBN: 0-393-95495-1
