Portrait of a ship after Van de Velde viewed from the starboard quarter. On the tafferel is a seated soldier and the Dutch golden lion wielding a dagger. There are two gun-ports in the stern and on the starboard side are thirty-six gun-ports, including two in the quarterdeck. The masts are shown, but without rigging. This print is from volume 2 or 3 of John Charnock's 'An History of Marine Architecture' (London: R. Faulder, 1800-1802). It was considered the most authoritative book on eighteenth-century shipbuilding published in England. The collector, Arthur H. Clark, used this print from his collection to illustrate his book 'The History of Yachting, 1600-1815' (New York & London: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1904), 12.
