Regulations and Instructions
relating to His Majesty's Service at Sea.
Established by His Majesty in Council.

Thanks to John Haskell, we can present here this invaluable source of information on the rules and customs that governed the Royal Navy in 1790.

The first edition was published in 1731.

All the aspects of the life on board and the duties of all the officers are explained up to the various forms and documents to be kept by the various officers.

We have added the second edition (1734) that may be of interest for the pre-nelsonian navy and the 1808 edition.
