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 22 (1809) contains maps and eyewitness accounts of the Walcheren Campaign in the Netherlands, which proved unsuccessful despite the capture of Flushing. An analysis and map of the Battle of the Basque Roads, a report of Lord Gambier's subsequent court martial, and a biographical piece on the future Admiral Thomas Cochrane are also included. Technical articles include detailed discussions on the use of Congreve's rockets.
