    I have now done what I should have done in the first place & cropped the photo so that it is inside the size limit. So here is a highlight from plate 92 West India Docks by Augustus Pugin and Thomas Rowlandson from Rudolph Ackermann’s Microcosm of London, or, London in Miniature (1808-11). The artists are both well-known, but the ships in this print are terrible.

    What kicked this off was East Sails West: The voyage of the ‘Keying’, 1846–1855, by Stephen Davies, which I was asked to review for Mariner’s Mirror, 101:1 (2015). http://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/7fRXH565mmfiWADvYC74/full
