DESCRIPTION: 

This small, highly-detailed antique copperplate engraving by the French artist Jean-Jerome Baugean published circa 1814 details a xebec (also 'zebec') underway. Xebec's are small vessels similar in size to a frigate and characterized by 2 or 3 lateen sails and a promiment overhanging bow and stern.

This engraving is from a series of 72 fine antique engravings of merchant and naval vessels created and engraved by Baugean (1764-1830)- "Collection de Toutes les Especes de Batimens de Guerre et de Batimens Marchard." Baugeans engravings are notable for their accuracy and detail.
