About the Authors
  • 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 1849 volume contains regular updates on the search for Sir John Franklin, missing in the Arctic since 1845. April's issue reports the government's sending of supplies and offering a reward of £20,000 for Franklin's rescue. Lady Franklin's appeal to the American President and his response appear in July, and in December Sir James Ross reports on his unsuccessful search, during which he even fitted roaming Arctic foxes with collars stating the location of supplies and a boat. Other contributions include information on Vancouver Island, East and South-East Asia, and Pacific languages, along with a review of an essay on the Kraken.
