Untitled - Kriegssschiff

DESCRIPTION: Antique print of a decorative 3 masted sailing vessel firing stern cannon. This early wood-block print shows a early 17th century vessel of war. Interesting feature of this time period are the six crows nests. These would have been used in battle to hurl stones, javelins and even caustic substances down on the heads of the opposition forces. An opportunity to own a plate that was first published in Furttenbach's very scarce 1629 classic of naval architecture "Architectura Navalis" . Interesting rigging!

Note: Seller has attributed the source as Wagner's "Delineatio Provinciarum Pannoniae et Imperii Turcici in Oriente Eine Grundrichtige Beschreibung deß ganzen Aufgangs", published in Augsburg 1684. "N3" at upper left.
