Published [scratched out, c.1805.]
Colour-printed aquatint with hand finishing, extremely scarce. 430 x 570mm, 17 x 22½", on Whatman paper.
A view of the arrival of Two Royal Navy ships, both captured from the French, at Constantinople. 'La Bonne Citoyen' was carrying the Turkish Ambassador back to the city, protected by Le Tigre, commanded by Sir William Sydney Smith. The vessels and several Constantinople landmarks are identified by a key at the top of the print. At this time Napoleon had brought an army of 13,000 north out of Egypt into Ottoman Syria, capturing Gaza and Jaffa before moving onto Acre. Smith sailed from Constantinople and helped reinforce Acre's defences, then captured the French artillery being carried by sea for the siege. Thus weakened, Napoleon made two assaults on Acre before withdrawing back to Egypt. His ambitions in the Levant thwarted, Napoleon said of Smith: 'That man made me miss my destiny'.
