A fascinating, interesting and attractive pair of plates describing the discipline of navigation. One plate is the title page to the navigation section of Richard Blome's important book, "The Gentleman's Recreation." the other plateis an illustrated diagrammatic description of the three parts of navigation - "The makeing or building Ships", The Ladeing of Ships, and, "The Art of Guiding, or Navigateing a Shipp ...". Each plate is well illustrated, that dedicated to the Tr Hon George Legge, shows, in the background, an English merchant ship in full sail. In the foreground, the allegorical figure of Navigation holds a full sail while she sits surrounded by the symbols of her knowledge: charts, a globe, a compass and other instruments.
