Came across this today.

A history of the British Merchant Navy, by Richard Woodman. ISBN 978 0 7524 4814 5. Published by The History Press,

A book about people; shipmasters and seafarers, merchants and traders, buccaneers and privateers, who are as as much a part of our nation’s story as any admiral, and whose tales need to be told

In 5 volumes, Neptune’s Trident — Spices and Slaves: 1500-1807 is volume one

Here an article from today's Lloyds.

Looks pretty good to me.
Cheers all
