Summary
Edward Battin, an employee of the British Navy, created this volume ca. 1685, dedicating it to an Earl, a Lord, a Lieutenant, a Governor, a Constable, and other prominent British individuals. The volume contains detailed instructions for the construction of ships of war, as well as information about cost and management issues related to the maintenance of a naval fleet, officers, and crew. The volume contains sections on the proportions of ships, their loaded weight, dimensions, ropes and rigging, and other physical aspects; a list of British naval ships which includes when, where, and by whom they were constructed, their dimensions and cost; the expenses related to furnishing ordnance; wages paid to officers and seamen, and the amount of food and drink (bread, beer, beef, pork, peas, fish, butter, and cheese) allocated to them according to class; the cost of maintaining ships both at sea and in harbor; and many other details.
