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 1852 volume is dominated by Arctic matters, particularly the long-running searches for the Franklin expedition. It includes a serialised journal of a voyage to China and a glowing review of Robert Fortune's Journey to the Tea Countries of China (also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection). A long-running serial, 'Shakings from Smyrna', contains an eclectic mix of information about Turkey. Piracy, slavery and shipwrecks also feature, as do the Great Exhibition, an assessment of the first year of operation of the Mercantile Marine Act and the docks, collieries, and shipbuilding industry of North-East England.
