DESCRIPTION: Small detailed etched engraving of a large Dutch three-masted kat with the crew hauling the wood-stocked anchor at the port bow. From a series of 84 engravings published in seven volumes from 1787 to 1791 by Gerritt Groenewegen (1754 - 1826): "Verscheide soorten van Hollandse Vaartuigen". Note that the maisail and foresail are furled and the topsails are at right angle- probably to help the vesel stay in place while weighing anchor.

On chain-laid paper with a fleur-de-lis watermark. From volume E, number 10.
