More Things to Look At

About 1890 the English publisher J. S. Virtue issued a six-volume set of books by Lieutenant Charles Rathbone Low, FRGS, entitled Her Majesty's Navy / Including Its Deeds and Battles. Here are a few of the 46 color plates from that series, originally offered for sale in 2007 by an unknown eBay seller [which was likely seller historicpaper2]. All of these shown here were painted by noted British naval and marine artist W. Fred Mitchell, but some of the other paintings in the set were by W. Christian Symons.
