The Battle of Bishops Court, in which privateer François Thurot's ships, the ships Maréchal de Belle-Isle, Terpsichore and Blonde, were brought to battle off the Isle of Man. After a close-fought action, Thurot's force was battered into submission, with his ships dismasted and reduced to a sinking condition. Thurot was hit by a musket ball and died during the action, with his body being thrown overboard. Around 300 of the French had been killed or wounded, while British losses amounted to four killed and 15 wounded on Aeolus, one killed and five wounded on Pallas and 11 wounded on Brilliant. Thurot's body was washed ashore at Port William and was buried with full military honours at Kirkmaiden, Galloway, Scotland.

The SS Great Britain was a passenger steam ship that sailed between Bristol and New York for the Great Western Steamship Company's transatlantic service. She was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel (18061859) and was the first large ocean-going ship to be built of iron and to be equipped with a screw propeller. The Great Britain was the longest passenger ship in the world from 1845 to 1854 at 322 ft (98 m) in length. In 1852 she was sold for salvage and repaired after the owners went bankrupt trying to refloat the ship when she ran aground in 1846. From 1852-1881 she carried thousands of immigrants to Australia, including the England Cricket Team in 1861. Then she was used in the Falkland Islands as a warehouse, quarantine ship and coal hulk until she was scuttled in 1937. In 1970 she was paid to be raised and repaired enough to be towed back to England by Sir Jack Arnold Hayward. She is now a museum ship that resides in a dry dock in Bristol Harbour.

[London: Marine Society, 1783.]
Engraving. 380 x 470mm (15 x 18½"). large margins chipped and age-toned.
A scene of a proposed free school for poor boys, preparing them for naval life. It shows the boys using apparatus for training for loading canon and winching an anchor, drilling and using navigation instruments, as well as ploughing and other agricultural activity. This plate was published in 'Proposal for County Naval Free Schools, to be Built on Waste Lands', by Jonas Hanway, written for humanitarian as well as patriotic reasons, the year that the American Revolutionary War ended in failure. After spending more than the year's income on the society on preparing the book (for which Hanway was censured), it was issued to privy councillors, lord lieutenants, influential MPs and admiralty and naval boards. However the plan was downsized by the society, and a single training ship was commissioned, anchored at Greenwich. As well as founding the Marine Society in 1756 (to procure seamen for the Seven Years' War), Hanway (1712-86) was a vice president of the Foundling Hospital, instrumental in the establishment of the Magdalen Hospital and a commissioner for victualling the navy (experimenting with ways to alleviate scurvy amongst seamen). He is said to be the first male Londoner to carry an umbrella, facing down heckling hackney coachmen.
