SHIP'S PAPER. H.C. SHIP THOMAS GRENVILLE. - Leaf From my Log Book [and] Saturday Nights Gazette - Saturday 18th July 1829. No. 00001. [to No. 0006 - August 22 1829].

n.p. [c1829] Foolscap folio contemporary calf decorated in gilt and blind (a bit scuffed); 6 & 107pp. Printed from manuscript by some duplicating or lithographic process on Edmonds watermarked paper dated 1827. Trimmed a bit close when bound; a handsome object. ¶ The complete run of the East India Company ship paper on a voyage to Madras prefaced by the 'Leaf from my Log Book' which is a six page review of the shipboard performances of 'She Stoops to Conquer' and 'Raising the Wind'. The most famous early 19th century ship newspaper is that produced on Parry's 1819-1820 arctic expedition and I can't find records of anything much produced between that and the 1840s. There must have been plenty, before and after Parry, but they weren't momentous enough to be saved as carefully. Whoever produced this quite luxurious compilation obviously thought there was something worth saving.
