I've now had the opportunity to look at Marston & Allen's "Shanties."

Interestingly enough, the song texts are not identical to those in "Antarctic Days."

Here is a list of the songs in the 14 pp. booklet:

Santy Anna [sic]
Blow the Man Down
Storm-Along [sic]
Leave Her Johnny
Good-Bye Fare Ye Well
Paddy Doyle
We're All Bound to Go
Mind How You Swing Your Tail
Shenandoah
The Yankee Ship
Sally Brown
Salt Beef
