Admiralty: Office of the Controller of the Navy and successors: Ships' Books (Series II)
These volumes consist of reports and other papers giving the history of the maintenance of a ship (hull, machinery and armament) from construction to disposal; in some cases details of complements are also given. This series of ships' books took the form of a loose-leaf album, and contains a selection of ships, mainly those of particular historical fame or of naval significance.
The ships' books in this series are arranged, as far as possible, in chronological order of date of launching.
Board of Admiralty, Surveyor of the Navy, 1832-1860
