‎Journal de bord manuscrit original d'un voyage en méditerranée du H.M.S. Southampton. Il comporte des tables dans lesquelles lécriture semble être deux mains différentes, l'une étant celle du capitaine Douglas, l'autre probablement celle d'un de ses officiers. La feuille repliée glissée dedans donne "Une liste des différents endroits où j'ai été à H: Majs Ship Southampton A. S. Douglas Esqr. Commr de quitter le Little Nore. Sept 1786 au [titre inachevé] ', signé' J. Baikies (?). ' Andrew Snape Douglas était un capitaine de marine écossais distingué dans la Royal Navy pendant les révolutions américaine et française. Il commandait le HMS Southampton, de 32 canons, qui avait été nommé navire de garde à Weymouth, lorsque le roi George III lui rendit visite. Douglas conduisit le roi lors de son premier voyage à bord d'un navire de guerre et, le 13 septembre 1789, le roi George nomma Douglas chevalier. Le manuscrit débute le 18 juillet 1786 avec le récit de sa remise de commandement du Southampton. Il décrit l'armement du navire et les divers ordres de lamirauté qu'il a reçus lors de ses voyages à Lisbonne, dans la baie de Gibraltar, dans la baie de Tanger, dans la baie d'Alger, à ville de Franche, à Marseille et à Toulon. 1 vol. in-4°. Manuscript on paper. Card board binding. Original manuscript log from a Mediterranean voyage of H.M.S. Southampton. It includes tables in what appear to be two different hands, one being Captain Douglas's, the other possibly in the hand of one of his officers. The laid-in sheet provides A list of the different places I have been at in H: Majs Ship Southampton A. S. Douglas Esqr. Commr from leaving the Little Nore. Sept 1786 to the [title unfinished]', signed 'J. Baikies(?).' Andrew Snape Douglas was a distinguished Scottish sea captain in The Royal Navy during the American and French Revolutions. He was in command of the 32-gun HMS Southampton, which had been appointed the guard ship at Weymouth, when the town was visited by King George III. Douglas conducted the King on his first voyage aboard a warship, and on 13 September 1789 King George appointed Douglas a knight bachelor. Douglas' manuscript opens on 18 July 1786 with an account of his receiving on that day the commission to command the Southampton. He describes the fitting of the ship and the various orders from Admiralty he was given during travels to Lisbon, Gibraltar Bay, Tangier Bay, Algier Bay, Ville Franche, Marseilles, and Toulon.‎
