Demi Galere, vue par l'avant, au mouillage

DESCRIPTION: This small, highly-detailed antique copperplate engraving by the French artist Jean-Jerome Baugean published circa 1814 details a demi-galère (small galley) at anchor. The demi-galere pictured carried 5 cannon, mounted at the bow and about 9 oars on each side. A full-sized galley might be armed with a dozen or more cannon and be fitted with banks of 24 oars to both port and starboard.

This demi galere is noteworthy because of the three masts with lateen sails. The additional mizzen near the stern would have increased the vessel's manueverability.

This engraving is from a series of 72 fine engravings of merchant and naval vessels created and engraved by Baugean (1764-1830) in the series: "Collection de Toutes les Especes de Batimens de Guerre et de Batimens Marchard." Baugean's engravings are notable for their accurate and detailed depictions of ship construction and rigging.
