First published in 1910, Ships, Sea Songs and Shanties is a real treasure trove. This 1913 edition contains some 80 songs compiled and annotated by an English master mariner, William Boultbee Whall (1847–1917). The illustrations by his niece, stainglass artist Veronica Whall (1887–1967), are in themselves a prize art collection. Anyone who wants to learn more about shanties and sea songs should have a copy of this book. (File size: 8.3 MiB, PDF, 143 pages)
