From the Preface to the Nootka Sound study: "The French revolutionary period contains so much of greater importance that historians have neglected the Nootka Sound incident. Of the few writers who have discussed it, the majority have written from a partisan standpoint....The purpose of this monograph is to give a more extended account, drawn largely from unpublished sources, and to correct as many of the errors as possible." Nootka Sound, an inlet on Vancouver Island, was named by Captain Cook in 1778. Spain and England both made claim to sovereignty over the area, and sought support from their respective allies. War that may well have involved several European nations was contemplated.
