Logbooks for British and American Ships in Persian Gulf: 19th Century

Dear All,

My name is Isacar Bolaños, and I am a doctoral candidate at Ohio State University, where I study the environmental history of the Middle East.

I am writing to ask whether anyone on H-Martime knows where I might be able to find logbooks for British and American merchant ships that travelled to the Persian Gulf (as far up as Basra, if possible) during the 19th century. I am also wondering if anyone knows of any books or articles that might mention the names of such merchant ships, since knowing the names may help me in finding specific logbooks, too.
