DESCRIPTION: "Saique batiment dont les Turcs" is one of a series of 17 folio-sized antique copperplate engravings created ca. 1690 by French galley Captain Henry Sbonski de Passebon. Engraved by Claude Randon, the collection of antique nautical architecture plates was first published from Marseille where, in the late 17th century the arsenal was home port to the galley service of Louis XIV.

According to Wikipedia- "A caïque (Greek: καΐκι, kaiki, from Turkish: kayık ) is the term for a traditional fishing boat usually found among the waters of the Ionian or Aegean Sea, and also a light skiff used on the Bosporus."
