Copperplate engraving printed in mauve on tabby-woven cotton ground. Against a shaded background sewn with ovals, parts of four vignettes: two virtually complete ones show a battle scene alternating with a group of three men, one of whom, in toga-like garb, points to a sailing vessel. Only small portions of other scenes visible. Brown stains. Corner cut out of lower right end.
