Subject: RE: Cotton screwing songs
I was in York on Tuesday in a bookshop and they had a couple of shelves on maritime history. I was actually looking for info on local sailing vessels but one of them had some pre-chanty era chants from the Gulf area and West Indies c1810. Next time I go in I'll at least make a note of the book details. Most of the older books were £20-£30 and I just haven't got the shelf space any more. I have a room full of about 2,000 folksong anthologies and if I buy any more the house will collapse.
