Description:

During the century 1795-1895, the Royal Navy carried out a series of surveys of the south-western coast of Africa. By command of their Lordships publishes for the first time verbatim extracts from the "Remark books" of the ships involved. These firsthand accounts offer illuminating perspectives on the advent of colonialism in Namibia. Historical notes, comments on the toponymy of the Namib coast, lists of relevant charts, and information on the ships put this crucial chapter of naval activity into context. An introduction by Captain R.J. Campbell of the Hydro-graphic Office describes the methods and problems of marine surveying in the nineteenth century. A detailed chronology helps to keep the sequence of events, identifies the protagonists and brings to life a period that combined serious scientific work with adventure at sea, gun-running, feudal hegemonies, suicidal politics, diplomatic wrangling, danger and betrayal.
