CHATTERTON, E. Keble. Old Ship Prints. London : Spring Books, (1965). FirstSpring Books Printing. Pp. (4),v-xii,(2),1-182, colour frontispiece, + 68 leaves of plates (8 of which are in colour). Illustrated. Large 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "In this famous book, first published in1927, Mr E. Keble Chatterton traces the history of the sailing ship in art , from the earliest rough woodcuts dating from the 15th century down to thedelicate lithographs of the late Victorian age, when sail was gradually gi ving way to steam. The book is much more than a selection of fine pictures,for the author's expert knowledge of maritime adventure and naval warfare enables him to fill in the background to each illustration, so that the reader can appreciate it as an historical document as well as a work of art. Thus, his account of the early mapmakers and their contribution to 16th-century exploration and conquest lends meaning to de Bry's illustrations of Benzon's 'History of the New World'; while Duncan's wonderful aquatint of the engagement between the Indefatigable and the Droits-de-l'Homme takes on added significance when the events leading up to the encounter are known." - from the dustjacket.
