Thread Name: Jamboree: Oat Cakes?
Subject: RE: Jamboree: Oat Cakes?
I find one of the most infuriating things about Hugill's books is how coy he is regarding the words of shanties. There is a suggestion that he sent off an unpublished MS to a G. Legman, a publisher of erotic books. Hugill also mentions 'A Collection of Sea Songs and Ditties' - the only known copy being in the Kinsey Institute. Anyone know anything further about either of these documents?
