NRS Vol 004 - Index to James's Naval History

CodeNRS004Source TypeBookAuthorsT. A. Brassey, LanguageEnglishPublication Date1895Full Description

This volume provides a comprehensive index to the British and Foreign ships, Naval Officers, Military Officers and Naval Actions listed in William James’ Naval History of Great Britain, 1793-1820. The five volumes of James’ work were first published in London between 1822-24 and there were numerous later editions. It remains by far the most detailed account of British naval operations of this period, but only the 4th edition, 1847, has an index, without which the work is almost unusable.

This is an index to the 7th edition, 1886, but it will work with all editions from the 3rd of 1837 and is an invaluable research aid.
