On the basis of CORAVEL observations, we present orbital parameters for 10 spectroscopic-binary systems including an evolved star, namely HD  13530, HD  28591, HD  47415, HD  78414, HD  123999, HD  153751, HD  174881, HD  179094, HD  212280 and HD  217188. The most significant result is related to HD  13530, for which we have found an orbital period of 1575.48[FORMULA]1.63 days and an eccentricity of 0.8815. Such an eccentricity value is the largest one known up to date for a single-lined spectroscopic binary with a giant component.

The other spectroscopic orbits described in this paper principally confirm with independent data previously obtained orbital solutions except HD  179094 for which the double-lined status was still unknown.
