Seaforth Bibliography (ePub)
A guide to more than 4,000 works on British Naval History 55BC- 1815
This remarkable work is a comprehensive historiographical and bibliographical survey of the most important scholarly and printed materials about the naval and maritime history of England and Great Britain from the earliest times to 1815. More than 4,000 popular, standard and official histories, important articles in journals and periodicals, anthologies, conference, symposium and seminar papers, guides, documents and doctoral theses are covered so that the emphasis is the broadest possible. But the work is far, far more than a listing. The works are all evaluated, assessed and analysed and then integrated into an historical narrative that makes the book a hugely useful reference work for student, scholar, and enthusiast alike. It is divided into twenty-one chapters which cover resource centres, significant naval writers, pre-eminent and general histories, the chronological periods from Julius Caesar through the Vikings, Tudors and Stuarts to Nelson and Bligh, major naval personalities, warships, piracy, strategy and tactics, exploration, discovery and navigation, archaeology and even naval fiction. Quite simply, no-one with an interest and enthusiasm for naval history can afford to be without this book at their side.
An amazing and very impressive work of research.Ausmarine - Sept 09
Remarkable... coverage is the broadest possible... a hugely useful reference workNautical Magazine
To describe this as a 'monumental book' does not do it justice! This is a most comprehensive and valuable work of reference, which can point the researcher of naval matters in the right direction to find those works on which their specific interest lies. Eugene is to be congratulated on his labour of love, and Seaforth Publishing for their courage in publishing such a huge tome.South West Maritime History Society - July 2008
