Overview

The Nautical Magazine first appeared in 1832, and was published monthly well into the twenty-first century. It covers a wide range of subjects, including navigation, meteorology, technology and safety. An important resource for maritime historians, it also includes reports on military and scientific expeditions and on current affairs. The 1833 volume contains frequent references to steam power, comparing steam marine engines and those used in the mines of Cornwall, and noting new steamship routes. Arctic exploration features prominently, with consideration of policy on expeditions, a drawing of an ice-reinforced ship, and a report on Sir John Ross's recently completed second voyage (described in detail in Ross' 1835 book, also available in the Cambridge Library Collection). Other topics covered include Australia, the Pacific, the Falkland Islands and St Kilda, navigation infrastructure projects and naval personnel, while a long-running serial presents the 'advice of a sailor to his son'.
