This is a mixed volume of documents, copies of Instructions and other documents from the 1630s. It can be found in the Caird online catalogue at this link. This volume was important to my PhD research as it provide examples of instructions for the Navy created prior to the Commonwealth, for comparison to those instructions issues by the Duke of York in 1660. It also helped provide a contrast to the Articles of War, which were included into law (where as Instructions were not so incorporated). As such these were the foundations for the “unwritten” aspect of the Royal Navy’s almost ‘Westminster Model Constitution’ following the Restoration.
