Published under the aegis of Great Britain’s Foreign Office (until 1968 when the Foreign Office was merged into the Foreign and Commonwealth Office), this multi-volume work includes the text of treaties, diplomatic correspondence, foreign constitutions as well as some internal British documentation, mainly on the budget. Discussions and agreements dealing with naval matters are scattered throughout these volumes and provide valuable access points on a host of maritime matters: naval stores, excises, naval budgets, pay scales, etc. Foreign documents are translated into English. Almost a complete run from volume 1 (1812/14) until 116(1922) is available online.
