JENKINS, James (publisher) -- [WHITCOMBE, Thomas (1760-1824]. The Naval Achievements of Great Britain from the Year 1793 to 1817. London: L. Harrison for J. Jenkins, 1817.

First edition, first issue, of this fine documentary record of naval engagements with the plates in three states. The title vignette is uncoloured, and the plates carry the pre-publication J. Whatman 1812 watermark. This was the companion piece to Martial Achievements by the same publisher. Tooley notes that the two portraits were additional plates and 'the work is complete without them.' Abbey Life 337; Tooley 282.

Quarto (341 x 280mm). Engraved title with vignette by W. Bartlett, 55 plates T. Sutherland and others after Whitcombe, all in three states: in outline, monochrome and fully hand-coloured on India (without the two portraits, a few occasional insignificant spots). Contemporary dark-red straight-grained morocco, covers gilt with royal arms, gilt edges (rebacked preserving original spine, extremities lightly rubbed). Provenance: Thomas Fitzherbert (bookplate) -- Sir Andrew Noble, Bart. (bookplate).
