Log Books of the Lady Nelson - Guttenberg Project

The logbooks of the Lady Nelson bear witness to the leading part played by one small British ship in the discovery of a great continent. They show how closely, from the date of her first coming to Sydney in 1800 until her capture by pirates off the island of Baba in 1825, this little brig was identified with the colonisation and development of Australia.

Then log books bhave been transcribed by Ida Lee and available to read on the Guttenberg Project website:
