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.

Each volume also contains engravings and charts relating to naval engagements and important harbours around the world. Volume 6, published in 1801, includes first-hand accounts and discussions of the naval tactics used during the Battle of Algeciras and the tactics of the Danish defence at the Battle of Copenhagen. Biographies of Sir James Saumarez and Sir Roger Curtis are also included, together with the history of Plymouth and the Preliminary Articles of the Treaty of Amiens, which were signed in October 1801.
