Catalogue Note

HMS Minden was a third-rate ship of the line built in Bombay Dockyard in 1810. This log records a journey guarding a convoy of ships travelling to India. HMS Illustrious - which, like the Minden, had part in the successful invasion of Java in 1811 - was of the same class. This logbook is especially noteworthy for its daily pictorial record of the ship under sail variously rigged and under different meteorological conditions.
