The men-of-war in which Anson went to sea were built mostly of oak. They were painted externally yellow, with a blue stripe round the upper works. Internally, they were painted red. They carried cannon on one, two, or three decks according to their size. The biggest ships carried a hundred cannon and nearly a thousand men. The ship in which this famous voyage was made was of the middle size, then called the fourth-rate. She carried sixty cannon, and a crew of four hundred men. Her lower gun deck, a little above the level of the water, was about 140 feet long. She was of about a thousand tons burthen.

Excerpt from A Supplement to Lord Anson's Voyage Round the World: Containing a Discovery and Description of the Island of Frivola First, That it is the pure Effeets of his Impartiality arifing from the Comparifon of the Idea he has formed of the Genius of our Nation, with that of his own. He delivers himfelf upon this Head with great Freedom, from a juft Perfuafion, that nothing good or great can be attained, but by a {teady Purfuit of Trutb. TO this he facrifices all that vulgar Se f Concei, t by which the Frenclo In general are drawn Into a fond Perfuafion, that they ex ceed all other Nations, almof't In the fame Degree that the refi of Mankind tranfcend other Animals. That in Point of Courage, Wifdom, Science, Wit, and Politenefs, they move in a fuperior Orb; and that whatever appears Of thefe excellent Qualities in other Nations, is borrowed by Reflection, or caught by Imitation. This ofientatious Folly he treats as it deferves, and points out very clearly its terrible Effects, by introducing Contempt of the only Met/sod by which Learning and Arts can be kept from running into Extravagance, and exalting capr ice under the plaufible Name Of taste to that Office which ought ever to be held by good sense yet all this is done not to deride, or to degrade, but to fhame his Countrynzen into what is boncfi, laudaole, and great.
