* This volume contains translations of about twenty traditional Danish ballads, and transitions to modern authors. Notably, he has also translated the Faroese Skrymsla ballad in this volume (now uploaded). See Borrow's vol. 7 to find other Danish tranditional ballads.
I've compiled a list Borrow's translations vs. DgF title and number to consult, under the "/danish" subdirectory.
