Portrait of a ship after Van de Velde viewed from the quarter port side. On the tafferel is a relief of a noblewoman flanked by two putti raising laurel leaves. There are four gun-ports in the stern and on the port side protrude twenty-one gun-ports. 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.
