AJS: The original journal was published 1798-1815 in forty volumes and isŻan essential work of reference on the period, this is a consolidatedŻedition compiled by Nicholas Tracy. We have had complete sets (and oddŻvolumes) on a number of occasions, both in half-yearly bindings and inŻoriginal blue wrappers.ŻKemp (Lt Cdr P.) Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea, page 576: AŻjournal which was published by Joyce Gold and was at one time edited byŻJames Clarke and John M'Arthur, who collaborated in writing the officialŻlife of Lord Nelson, was issued in six-monthly volumes between the yearsŻ1798 and 1818. The series is valuable historically in that it spans theŻgreater part of the two long wars with France (1793-1801 and 1803-15). ItŻwas illustrated with prints, including some portraits which are often goodŻand sometimes excellent, and a large proportion of its matter wasŻdirectly contributed by serving naval officers. For instance, after theŻbattle of the Nile, Nelson himself sent the editors, at their request, aŻcharacteristic 'Sketch of his Life', as did Lord Collingwood after theŻbattle of Trafalgar. Collingwood's sketch, like many others, firstŻappeared in an 'edited' version, and not to his great advantage, butŻafter his death his origional contribution was printed, and it is found toŻbe as direct and remarkable as his letters.ŻWhile even good contemporary material often needs to be regarded withŻcircumspection. The Naval Chronicle is generally accurate and remains aŻmine of detailed information not to be found elsewhere.
