DESCRIPTION: Highly decorative, whimsical, rare antique wood-block nautical engraving of a sailing ship firing at sea monsters on both sides of the vessel. Ship bears an ensign of a forearm bearing a sword. A great chance to have a plate that was first published in Furtenbach's very scarce 1629 classic of naval architecture "Architectura Navalis" .

Note: Seller has attributed the source as Wagner's "Delineatio Provinciarum Pannoniae et Imperii Turciciin Oriente Eine Grundrichtige Beschreibung deß ganzen Aufgangs", published in Augsburg 1684. "N4" at upper left.
