About this title

Synopsis:

From dust jacket notes: "...Newbold Smith has over many years acquired the most extensive private collection of early American naval prints, depicting significant and colorful battles at sea, individual heroes and ships, and related naval actions. This book treats each of the 184 prints, and reproduces 115 of them, 92 in full color. The author provides historical background to the wars and to each engagement, in addition to detailed information about the prints. The book must be considered the authoritative work on the subject of early naval prints, as well as a fascinating and, until now, unavailable aspect of naval history...."
