Q listed the contents of W.B. Whall's "Sea Songs and Shanties" above.

eBay has a copy of the 1920 edition (stated as "first edition", but the book first appeared in 1910).

Not bad if you got it for the starting price (15). But the book is still in print, available from the original publishers, now known as Brown, Son & Ferguson (Glasgow) at 9.95. (12.15 inc UK post, 14.81 overseas).

I have linked to Brown, Son & Ferguson's website in the Merchant Navy Songs Permathread. No other shanty books in their catalogue, but an incredible variety of books on Maritime subjects from the days of sail right up to technical manuals of the modern era. "Sea Songs and Shanties" is in the Story of the Sea section of the catalogue.
