Description
Of military history interest! A fine coloured aquatint entitled "Capture of La Proserpine" from the volume "The Naval Achievements of Great Britain from the year 1793-1817" published by James Jenkins of The Strand, London in 1817. Roger Quarm the curator of pictures at the National Maritime Museum has said of this work "As a record of naval events spanning a period of over twenty years it has no precedent. At no time prior to 1817 had a publisher attempted such a complete volume of documentary naval prints. It is the quality of accuracy which makes Jenkins so valuable". The published volume offered 55 aquatint illustrations after paintings by T Whitcombe. Most engravings were by T Sutherland, but others were done by Jeakes (as in this example) and Bailey. La Proserpine was a French Hebe class frigate (38 guns) which was captured by the Royal Navy in the action of June 13th 1796. This was part of a short campaign during the French Revolutionary Wars to stop French ships harrying British merchant shipping particularly around southern Ireland.
