More Google Book Search stuff: the Journal of the Royal United Services Institute
I have seen frequent references to the Journal of the Royal United Services Institute in Dr. Oscar Parkes' and David Brown's writing. I find that at least some of the issues are available online, through Google Book Search. I was searching with the string "Mersey Class Cruiser", with the "Full view books" radio button selected. I didn't find what I was looking for, but Google Book Search did take me to a page in an article titled "WAR VESSELS FOR THE BRITISH NAVY", from the 1877 RUSI journal. The table of contents listed some provocative titles, besides the one I found. Was one was SIr Edward Reed, called "On circular Iron-clads".
