Editorial Reviews

The Great Circle
“This book provides an immense amount of data for historians wishing to analyse the UK’s trade and shipping.  While it is not uncommon to see national shipping data, it is rare to get detailed series for individual ports.  From Aberystwyth to Yarmouth, from Aberdeen to Wigtown, from Ballina to Youghal, historians will be able to use these series to analyse regional and local patterns of trade and shipping.” –The Great Circle, Vol 21, No. 2 1999
The Northern Mariner
“This volume will without doubt be of great utility to researchers in maritime history both for the data it makes accessible and the introduction, which provides valuable background on the compilation of the Annual Statement and discusses problems of definition and usage ... The volume is handsomely and strongly bound and, crucial in a reference work of statistics, the tables are admirably clear and easily read. All in all, this is an important reference volume and working tool for all those engaged in the study of British shipping during the era when it was most dominant.” –The Northern Mariner, Vol. X, No. 2 (April 2000)

This book will come as both a relief and a blessing to many a maritime historian and researcher, abolishing, as it surely will do in all but the most extreme and specialised of circumstances, long hours immersed in the Annual Statements of Navigation and Shipping . . . David Starkey and his whole team, including those at the University of Exeter Press, are to be congratulated on a fine book, nicely done. This is a purpose realised.
International Journal of Maritime History
This book makes available for the first time extensive statistics of the greatest value for assessing the progress of British shipping in particular ports. It is essential reference material for students of maritime and general and regional economic history and, as such, should be on the bookshelf of every serious library. We owe a great debt to its compilers.
