Nautical Illustrations, 681 Permission-Free Illustrations from Nineteenth-Century Sources
Seagoing vessels and marine-related objects, from sailors' knots and splices to an Egyptian barge, from cannon and other ships' artillery to a sixteenth-century man-of-war used by Henry VIII. A permission-free source of nautical illustrations and motifs, the collection is also a magnificent record of the development of sea power and a handy guide to nautical equipment. Detailed images from rare sources depict primitive canoes, a Roman galley, ship figureheads, naval battles, dock scenes, lighthouses, pirate ships, steam-powered battleships, and a wealth of other subjects. Captions identify pictures, which are arranged chronologically.
