The Nautical Magazine Library Collection

All the individual Nautical Magazine issues available as part of the Online Library Collection. The content regularly included serialised accounts of voyages, descriptions of distant countries, notes on new shipping regulations, and discussion of the latest technologies.

The Nautical Magazine first appeared in 1832, published monthly at the price of one shilling. It aimed to advance ‘the safety of seamen’, with a focus on the merchant marine, and a readership of professional seafarers. The founding editor, A. B. Becher (1796–1876), served for many years under the distinguished hydrographer Sir Francis Beaufort, and the magazine reflected Beaufort’s interests by reporting on new charts, research on weather and the oceans, astronomy and navigation, and statistics on wrecks and the Lifeboat Institution.

The content regularly included serialised accounts of voyages, descriptions of distant countries, notes on new shipping regulations, and discussion of the latest technologies. There were also reports on current affairs such as (during the Victorian period) the searches for Sir John Franklin’s lost Arctic expedition, the Crimean War and the Suez Canal project.

Astute editorial decisions ensured that the content mirrored the evolving concerns of readers, enabling ‘the Nautical’ to remain popular for nearly two centuries. It is a fascinating source of data, news and opinions for maritime, economic and social historians, genealogists, and shipping enthusiasts.
