Annuaire des traditions populaires

Full reference

Annuaire des traditions populaires, 1886-1890 et 1894. Edited by Paul Sébillot, 6 volumes, Société des traditions populaires, Paris, Maisonneuve et Ch. Leclerc.

This periodical is the organ of the Societé des traditions populaires and complements its main body, the Revue des traditions populaires. This periodical is valuable for assessing the scholarly social networks around folk traditions in the last quarter of the 19th century, in France but also in Europe (particularly around 1894) and for understanding the functioning of the Société des traditions populaires (statutes, regulations, membership lists...). But it is also, in view of the fact that it is addressed to a more specialized audience than the Revue, a precious testimony to the state of methodological reflection at the end of the 19th century. It contains articles by Paul Sébillot, mainly questionnaires and instructions for collecting oral literature and ethnographic objects (1887), intended to train members of the Society who wished to participate in that collective endeavour.
