Determined to prove William Symond's designs to be failures, the new Tory Board of Admiralty sent out this experimental squadron in 1845 under the elderly Rear-Admiral Hyde Parker. Consisting of the pre-Symonds' Trafalgar, St. Vincent. Rodney and Canopus, along with Symonds' Queen, Albion, Vanguard and Superb. Since no heavy weather was sought (guess Commander too elderly?) no real comparisons were effected, and Symonds resigned in 1847 after a 'Commitee of Reference' was imposed to oversee him. Binding sound, worn spine and corners, text clean with 55 pages of reports, followed by 52 folding charts and diagrams. Followed by sections of Returns, Shot Report's (colour diagrams) and Complement Returns of Officers and Crews, of varying dates.
