Thread Name: Oxford Book of Sea Songs/Boxing the Compass
Subject: RE: Oxford Book of Sea Songs/Boxing the Compass
Ross,

Obviously I agree with the non use of the word "Oxford" or "Penguin", but "Boxing the Compass" is so fundamentally differnt a title that anyone would be forgiven for thinking it was an all new book. It has also recently advertised as containing sea shanties, but I find it disappointing in this respect.
I still have this sneaking suspicion that the new publishers are hoping to sell copies to customers, who already have the first version.
