French Mediterranean Privateers

Divers Corsaires francais de la Mediterranee

DESCRIPTION: Original antique nautical copper-plate engraving of three French privateer ( corsair ) vessels. Published circa 1814 by Jean-Jerome Baugean this authentic small plate shows three Mediterranean privateers at anchor. According to John Harland: "Baugean does not comment on the rigs, but from right to left they are a schooner, tartane, and what seems to be an armed pinque. The last is airing both its lateen and square sails. This ensemble emphasizes the fact that although northern European rigs, like the schooner, were to be found in the Mediterranean, there were a number of rigs - and indeed hull forms - unique to that sea." (Harland, John. "The Maritime Prints of J.J. Baugean", Chatham Publishing. London, 2000. p. 98.)
This antique 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.
