The Nautical Magazine first appeared in 1832, and was published monthly well into the twenty-first century. It covers a wide range of subjects, including navigation, meteorology, technology and safety. An important resource for maritime historians, it also includes reports on military and scientific expeditions and on current affairs. The 1835 volume lists new charts for parts of the Indian Ocean and the Australian coast, and includes a letter proposing a canal across the Isthmus of Darien (Panama). It also contains an allegedly authentic journal of a Russian privateer, whose lurid details read more like a work of fiction. Other coverage includes regular items of naval and shipping news, the sailing times of the Falmouth packets, discussion of courts martial and of discipline on merchant ships, and a review of the recently rediscovered papers of the first Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed (also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection).
