The Naval Annual was a book that sought to bring together a large amount of information on naval subjects, which had previously been obtainable only by consulting numerous publications and chiefly from foreign sources.[1] It was started by Thomas Brassey, 1st Earl Brassey, and was first published in 1886.

During its life it underwent a number of name changes.
