Book Description

This is a conflation of correspondence with a journal kept by Rooke’s secretary (which exists in several versions), all covering his Baltic expedition of 1700, and the attack on Cadiz and Vigo in 1702. Uniquely among the Society’s early issues, this book went out of print almost as soon as it was published, having received some damning reviews.

Table of Contents

Introduction, Journal Entries by Date, Rooke's Instructions, Question of Salutes, Storm, Enquiry, Questions. Charts, Index.
