Charles Rathbone Low (1837-1918) was a lieutenant in the Indian Navy and author of popular books on military history and nautical exploration, including Soldiers of the Victorian Age and Maritime Discovery. This two-volume work, first published in 1877, comprehensively covers the history of the British Indian Navy, from its origins as the Bombay Marine to its abolition in 1863. It is an exceptionally detailed historical source, containing indexes of the ships and officers of the Indian Navy, and as such, it is a work of great importance to those interested in the history of the Indian Navy or the people that came into contact with it. Volume 2 begins in 1831 and includes chapters on both the Burmese and Persian Wars. The final chapters detail the Navy's involvement in the Indian Mutiny of 1857 and the events that led to its abolition.
