[Broadside. Maritime Song sheet.]. Will Watch, The Smuggler Bold. n. p.: n. p., 1825.
This is a rare broadside with an attractive hand colored copperplate and the text of a popular ballad. A version of this text, set to music by John Davy, is included in "Everyman's Book of Sea Songs" [Richard Baker and Antony Miall, L: J. M. Dent and Sons, 1982] which gives his dates as 1769- 1824. Searching the usual sources I find no example of the present broadside in institutional holdings, one copy located in the trade seven years ago. [TPI catalog 181 12/7/2008]. I locate a sheet music version by Davy from 1872. (#kfk804) $750
