A fold out of a detailed section plan of a 17th-century Dutch admiral's ship carrying 96 guns. The masts, rudder, and the rooms of the ships are labeled within the illustration. The rest of the ship is labeled with letters and numbers that would have corresponded to letters and numbers on a legend.
