[Turkish plan of the Siege of St. Jean d'Acre?]
Lithograph with minimal colour. Printed area 450 x 590mm, 17¾ x 23¼". Laid on linen, two wormholes, some other damage.
A very rudimentary plan showing a fleet of European warships bombarding a city with Turkish defenders, who are shown within the battlements using heavy canon to protect the fortified port. The Europeans appear to be worse off, with one ship sinking and another on fire. The Turks seem unperturbed, and none of the city is damaged. In the interior is a sketch of a steam engine in profile.
