Sailors' costumes and ships of the British fleet in colour
A beautifully illustrated snapshot of British Navy uniforms, actions and ships produced at the later part of Queen Victoria's reign. An absolute must for anyone with an interest in the dress, and history, of the Royal Navy.
The Naval & Military Press, in a special publication, has assembled the full set of 0000000 chromolithographic colour plates plus all the decorated colour frontispieces and title pages, taken from 'Her Majesty's Navy 1890'. This is a beautifully illustrated snapshot of British Navy uniforms, actions and ships that was originally produced at the end of the 19th century by the London publishing business 'J.S. Virtue', the main feature of which was the production of illustrated works.
The plates are by W. Christian Symons, the English painter in oil and watercolour, and W. Fred Mitchell, the prolific British artist commissioned to paint many naval and merchant ships, principally in watercolour.
