The 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 8, published in 1802 during the brief Peace of Amiens, focuses mainly on technical and professional matters, such as shipbuilding, marine insurance, calculating longitude, and the opening of the new West India Docks, London. It includes descriptions of the Andaman Islands, Malta and Copenhagen, and biographies of admirals such as Lord Anson and Sir Thomas Graves, together with reviews of books on naval topics.
