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 1853 volume saw the arrival of a co-publisher, J. D. Potter (an established agent for Admiralty charts), and a move to a new printer associated with Potter, Walter Spiers. It contains articles on China, the Indus, Melbourne and the commercial regulations of Rio de Janeiro. The Antigua hurricane and a meteorological conference at Brussels also feature, as does a treatment for yellow fever. Reports of Robert McClure's long and challenging Arctic expedition in the Investigator dominate the November and December issues, and book reviews include William Kennedy's account of the Prince Albert's voyage in search of Sir John Franklin.
