Figure 2 Title page to James Lind's A Treatise of the Scurvy. Page 9 James Lind described scurvy as follows (4,31): In the early stages, patients do not look very sick, but are listless, perhaps a little pale, and have an aversion to exercise. They still eat well, but in a few days develop universal lassitude, stiffness, and feebleness of the knees, some difficulty breathing, itchy gums, and rough, dry skin splattered with bluish and reddish spots. These hemorrhages vary from the size of a lentil to a handsbreadth, mostly on the legs, less on the arms and trunk, and rarely on the head or face.

He left Seville, Spain, on August 10, 1519, with five ships and a contingent of 237 sailors. During his circumnavigation of the world Magellan lost 76 of his men to scurvy. Records suggest that their eating the wild celery of Patagonia prevented a greater loss of men during the long Pacific section of their journey. Unfortunately, Magellan did not complete the first trip around the world. He became involved in a tribal war in the Philippines and was killed. Only one of his five original vessels continued on and completed the global trip.

Many of these voyages have been recounted by Carpenter (2), McCord (2225), and others (11). Sea Scurvy in the 1700s The 1600s was a period of empire building by Spain, Portugal, Britain, and Holland. As a result, strong navies were built to extend exploration, expand empires, and develop and defend far-flung colonies. The British Navy up until 1700 served primarily to guard the British coast and approaching shipping. Consequently, voyages were not long and hence avoided scurvy. When war was declared against Spain in 1739, long sea voyages became important the ravages of scurvy appeared among the British sailors.
