A remarkable – and rare – work which is a complete historiographical and bibliographical survey of the most important scholarly and printed materials about the naval and maritime history of England and Great Britain, from the earliest times to 1815.
More than 4,000 popular, standard and official histories, important articles in journals and periodicals, anthologies, conference, symposium and seminar papers, guides, documents and doctoral theses are included.
Each work is also evaluated, assessed and analysed, and then integrated into an historical narrative that makes the book a hugely useful reference work for students, scholars and enthusiasts. It is divided into twenty-one chapters, which cover resource centres, significant and naval writers, pre-eminent and general histories, the chronological periods from Julius Caesar, through the Vikings, Tudors and Stuarts to Nelson and Bligh. Major naval personalities are featured, also warships, piracy, strategy and tactics, exploration, discovery and navigation, archaeology, and even naval fiction.
This is a very large paperback, also very scarce, pp xx, 875.
