Описание: 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 32 (1814), published while Napoleon was in exile on Elba, concentrates on the continuing war with America. It includes articles comparing navy and army pay, and discussing international law regarding neutrals. More space is allocated to topographical information and correspondence than in the preceding volumes, and there are biographies of Matthew Flinders, Sir George Collier and Samuel Blyth, and poetry including excerpts from Byron.
