Many great Nautical prints have survived from the Civil War era.
This section is dedicated to some of these fantastic prints. Each
illustration is original and over 140 years old.
is an original leaf printed in 1862 showing a pirate ship.
The print is captioned, "The Pirate Alabama, alias, 290, Certified to
be Correct by Captain Hagar of the Brilliant". Original Pirate
material is hard to find, and this is a really nice print. On the
back is an interesting story on Robert E. Lee, George McClellan, and
Beauregard. The story is full of very interesting reading on these
the cover leaf from an original 1861 Harper's Weekly showing a really nice
picture of a ship in port, unloading material. The print is
captioned, "Rhode Island Artillery Landing from the Steamer Bienville
at Washington Arsenal on April 25." The print also has an image
captioned, "The Lady Davis, Two Guns, Captain Enger, Ship of War of
the Southern Confederacy." This is a really nice and displayable
print with great historical content.
print shows two steam sloops from the Union Navy. The top image
shows the Steamship "Star of the West", and the lower image
shows the "Marion". Both are large vessels with both Steam
paddle wheels, and sails. The print includes a nice story on the
ships. The back of the print includes many fascinating stories of
the news of the day. The print is in good condition, with one small
1" tear in the lower margin which has been repaired with Library
mending tape. A nice and highly displayable piece of Navel History.
Print is 11x16.
is a visually dramatic image of the United States Sloop of War
"Brooklyn". The print is from an original 1861 edition of
Harper's Weekly. In my mind this is the best print of a sailing ship
to be found in the pages of Harper's Weekly. It shows the Brooklyn
with sails hoisted, and sailing towards you. It shows a large amount
of detail. The print will make a spectacular display when
framed. It would make a great gift for anyone interested in the
Civil War, Sailing Ships or anyone who has been in the Navy. The print is
in very good condition. Print is 11x16.
