Hi Brian,

Welcome to the SN Forum! Thanks for signing on.

A while back, I was trying to find your email address in order to ask you if you had information about correspondence between Cochrane and Hall. I'm in the middle of a work project at the moment, but if I have some free time later on today, I will try to post my question.

Post Jonathan R Dull: The Age of the Ship of the Line ....



This book from Pen & Sword could be an interesting one about the two adverseries: The Age of the Ship of the Line British and French Navies 1650-1815

Has anyone come across it? Any comments?

Post Sea Soldier - edited by Anne Petrides
Sea Soldier: an officer of Marines with Duncan, Nelson, Collingwood and Cockburn

This is a new one to me and, apparently, not in wide circulation. A collection of letters and journals from T Marmaduke Wybourn, a RM Officer, written between 1797 and 1813. Starting during the Nore mutiny, Wybourn travels extensively, reporting from Holland, Copenhagen, Egypt, the Med, the Baltic and America. I'm a sucker for contemporary letters; they give a real fell to the period, and these are some of the best I've read. The editor maintains a commentary, giving the historical background to the events described and the book is well illustrated, mainly with plates from the Naval Chronicle.
Published by Parapress ISBN 1-898594-69-4

Sozaev & Tredrea: "Russian Warships in the Age of Sail 1696-1860"

Highly recommended, John and Ted have done a really good job on a little known subject (at least in the west).

For those who don't know John Tredea is a highly respected American amateur naval historian, and Ted Sozaev is a Russian profesional Naval historian. The research was done by Ted and John provided the English framework and text

Yes, that looks as if it might be an interesting addition to a scarce field. But there is something odd about Pen & Sword. In the printed leaflet that came through the post a few days ago, Shelvocke's "A Privateer's Voyage round the World" is reduced to GBP 10.39, but the online list that Mary's message links to still has the book at the original price of GBP 12.99. I was setting up an online order, but backed out when I noticed that.

There are a couple of less than favourable reviews at Amazon.com.

Thanks for pointing that out. I was also surprised to find that these reviews are only on Amazon.com and are not listed on Amazon.co.uk, the British branch.
