GUEST,Terry Blankenship Help: Melodies to Broadside Ballads (38) Melodies to Broadside Ballads 18 Jun 01

I was just checking out the Bodleian Library of Broadside Ballads.

There are lyrics to tons of songs there but I didn't see any music or even melody lines.

Where can you find the melodies to broadside ballads? Is there anywhere on line?

Did broadside ballads originnally come with the music or just the lyrics?

Are there any large volumes of broadsides available in book form today (like the Childs Ballads)?

Are all the volumes of Childs Ballads available today or are they out of print?
