A copperplate engraving from the book titled, 'Plan de plusieurs bâtimens de mer avec leurs proportions dedié à Son Altesse Serenissime Monseigneur Louis Auguste de Bourbon' (Marseille: c. 1720) by the French Captain Henri Sbonski de Passebon. The book was a collection of naval architecture prints. This print is a section view of a standard late 17th century French galley (galère, Fr.) with a detailed legend of parts (in French). Below the galley is a representation of the keel-form at the shipyard on which the keel was apparently built up.
