Fresh as the breezes of that ocean to which they owe their inspiration, the chanties and songs here collected come to us as a most interesting and unique contribution to our literature of the sea. For this volume contains no mere study-compilation of more or less authentic sea ditties, mingled with the nautical effusions of landsmen. It is original in its conception and execution. With one or two tri?ing exceptions, it IS a collection of what may be styled the genuine article -not the creation of landsmen written for or about sailors, but the actual working songs of the sea that are in use at the present time.
