Full and Correct Account of the Naval Occurences of the Late War Between Great Britain and the United States of America; Preceded By a Cursory Examination of the American Accounts of Their Naval Actions - 1st edition - London - 1812, octavo, 528 pages, 3 plates. William James wrote his "Naval Occurrences of the War of 1812" to counter the bombastic, patriotic and false version of the war put forward by American authors. To free the war from 'American dross', James used his legal mind to pick through a wealth of evidence and came to the conclusion that 'no American ship of war has, after all, captured a British ship of the same force' A beautiful book.
