Sketches of a Voyager
N.P.: N.D., c., 1825. Oblong quarto, engraved title and 25 etchings as called for by cover label, small owner's bookplate; some scattered foxing; in the rare original floral wrappers (somewhat worn) with gilt label. Voyage sketches by daniell. A minor but interesting work by the great topographical artist William Daniell, with a number of Indian and maritime scenes. This is an intriguing assortment of etchings by the famous creator of two of the greatest of all travel books on the grand scale: Oriental Scenery and Voyage Round Great Britain. Two striking images here show HMS Lion, a sixty-four gun Worcester class ship which saw action against France, and a 'Spanish East Indiaman' among a fleet.
