The Irish National Songster, 1878 / 1874.

Two "books" within, numbered separately with two alphabetical contents lists, same format throughout. Approx 400 songs in all, no repeats. A broad variety, traditional to vaudeville. The first part, "Erin-go-Bragh", contains many lyrics by Thomas Moore; one song in that part is new words to Harry Clifton's Paddle Your Own Canoe, which had been copyright 1867. The second, "Faugh-a-Ballagh Song Book", lists different titles, a few "Irish" stage-stories, and editor's notes after a few titles.
