Online Primary Sources: Selected British Sources

Spanning the centuries from Henry VIII to the Napoleonic era, Select naval documents provides almost 150 documents culled from such repositories as The Public Record Office and the Calendar of State Papers, inter alia. You will find here Henry’s sea laws, Drake’s view on strategy, and several writings of Nelson. Within this one volume are signal documents that allow one to trace the development of the British navy into the power that it became.
