Thomas Jenner feicet 1653
Rare etching, 17th century watermark. Sheet 205 x 245mm (8 x 9¾"). Trimmed into image on three sides, losing title at top.
Extremely scare & wonderful image, a survivor of the 17th century. A portait of 'The Sovereign of the Seas', one of the biggest warships of the Stuart navy, ordered by Charles I as part of the arms race with the Dutch and paid for with the notorious 'Ship Money' tax that made Charles so unpopular. This is a reduced copy of a two-sheet engraving by John Payne, published as a propaganda piece c.1638, with added key letters (key not present). Built by Peter Pett and launched in 1637, the 'Sovereign of the Seas' had 102 guns as specified by Royal command, but soon after she entered service the number was cut to make her faster and safer. The diarist John Evelyn described her as 'a monstrous vessel ... being for burthen, defense and ornament the richest that ever spread cloth before the wind'. During the Commonwealth she was renamed, first 'Commonwealth' then 'Sovereign', before being made the 'Royal Sovereign' on the Restoration of Charles II in 1660. She survived the three Anglo-Dutch Wars and the Nine Years' War with the French only to burn while laid up at Chatham in 1697.
BM 1881,0611.274, also trimmed and damaged; see 1854,0614.252 for Payne's original. Not in Hind.
