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 1867 volume features numerous pieces of verse about the disasters of the previous year, including the wreck of the London and a fire at the Crystal Palace. It describes hurricanes, an iceberg collision, volcanic eruptions and a tsunami, as well as a fatal shipwreck in Cornwall that inspired the funding of a lifeboat. It also reports on a yacht race from New York to Cowes, the aftermath of the Jamaican rebellions, a route to China via the Irrawaddy River and the discovery of a mid-ocean ridge in the Pacific, suggesting the possibility of laying a submarine cable to Honolulu.
