DescriptionThe Naval Chronicle, published in 40 volumes between 1799 and 1818, is a key source for British maritime and military history. This reissue is the first complete printed reproduction of what was the most influential maritime publication of its day. The subjects covered range from accounts of battles and lists of ships to notices of promotions and marriages, courts martial and deaths, and biographies, poetry and letters. Each volume also contains engravings and charts relating to naval engagements and important harbours around the world. Volume 17 (1807) contains accounts of activity on the West Indies station and in the Dardanelles. It also elaborates on the preceding volume's report of the unsuccessful attack on Buenos Aires which led to the court martial of Admiral Sir Home Popham. Political topics include Lord Cochrane's election speeches and the abolition of the slave trade, and technical papers cover shipbuilding and the regulation of pilots.
