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 depicts a French galley ship with two lateen sails in the Mederranean Sea. The oars are raised out of the water. Smoke floats out from the middle of deck from the port side. In the background is a mountainous coast with some building scattered near the water. There is a watermark of a sun with a face and another watermark of three or more letters visible on the verso.
