Jolly Sailors Bold: Ballads and Songs of the American Sailor is a major anthology of folk songs and parlor songs excavated from nine-teenth-century sailors' shipboard journals. The author-editor-compiler is Stuart M. Frank, senior curator of the world-famous New Bedford Whaling Museum, executive director emeritus of the Kendall Whaling Museum, and renowned authority on sailor songs and shipboard music. The product of more than thirty years of research, this book features authentic historic renditions of more than two hundred songs, with texts recovered unchanged from historic nineteenth-century shipboard manuscripts, here reunited with their original melodies.
