5-String Banjo Books

   Books which are marked * are indexed in the BTI. Click the link to "CONTENTS" to see the tunes in that book. Those marked LOC show the Library of Congress catalog number.   I don't have much information on some of these books, having picked them up from old catalogs and the like. I've included some folk song books as well as banjo books, when they seemed likely to include useful songs. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone with additions, corrections, etc.
