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 1836 volume shows gradual changes in the structure of individual issues, with 'Naval Chronicle' appearing as a section heading from July onwards, in a font closely resembling the title page of that earlier periodical (also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection). It contains reports of the loss of a convict ship and ensuing discussion of conditions on convict and emigrant ships, and comments on a new tonnage bill affecting the registration and taxation of ships. Other topics covered include steam power, lighthouse and harbour construction, courts martial, wreckers in France and a description of the Jagannath temple in Orissa.
