Naval Miscellanies

These are volumes containing works that are not lengthy enough to get published by themselves. As is stated in the preface to the first of these volumes by the editor: “In the course of the last few years I have received from different quarters and have collected a variety of documents, individually too short for a volume and yet of such interest as to render it very desirable to lay them before the Society [Naval Records Society].” Two volumes are currently available freely online.  The first, published in 1902, contains such material as the journals of Henry Duncan; extracts of the papers of Lord Hood; and letters from Lord Nelson. And the second volume, published in 1912, contains works by such luminaries as John Jervis and George Pringle.
