Admiral Hamilton edited three volumes of Byam Martin’s papers which were issued out of sequence.
Half this volume consists of another autobiographical collection, ‘Reminiscences and Notes’, written after those in Vol III but dealing with his early life up to 1794. These are followed by correspondence of his father illustrating his entry into the Navy in 1786 and early service, and his own from 1795 to 1807. In appendices are printed the Captain’s Orders of the Andromeda in 1788, when Prince William Henry commanded her and Martin was a midshipman, and the proceedings of the court martial of Captain Lumsdame in 1793 in which Martin was involved.
