Plate 6 from 'American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races' after Frederic Schiller Cozzens. The chromolithograph depicts some of the earliest, successful American yacht racers 'America,' 'Cambria,' 'Dauntless,' 'Idler,' and 'Magic' in a cup race finishing off Staten Island in 1870. The yachts are on a starboard tack with 'Magic' in the lead. The race included the English yacht 'Cambria.' The portfolio of prints was originally accompanied by a book by U.S. Navy Lieutenant James Douglas Jerrold Kelley that described each plate and provided historical context. Part of the publication information that was printed on a small label and pasted on the verso is still visible on the verso of this print.
