Navy Records Society List

The Navy Records Society was established in order to make rare and unpublished works relating to British naval history available on a broader basis. This is a list of their publications from 1894 to 2001. Note: several volumes have been published since this date – the Society is still very active.

All originals were bound in blue over white cloth, with gilt lettering and a gilt emblem on the front cover. As multi-volume sets have been issued sometimes years apart, their appearance is occasionally not uniform.
