Fine. 1931013098; Binding is clean, sound and unworn. Contents are almost as new.; First Printing of the FIRST EDITION, 2002. 8" Tall, XII + 124pp. PAPER COVERS. Cover is considerably lighter than posterboard. "This funny and unrestrained collection of more than twenty sea chanties is not for small children. Sung for as long as sailors have gone to the sea in ships, chanties helped to make shipboard tasks easier and to pass the time on years-long voyages. Each generation of sailors adapted the songs to their own needs and cultures, forming an unbroken link from the age of sail to the nuclear-powered navies of today. With more than 60 b/w illustrations and explanations of Naval terms and life-including some of the bawdier parts of a sailor's life, this book shows the unexpurgated side of military life and literature.
