Fifty Plates Of Shipping And Craft, Drawn And Etched By E.W. Cooke.
RA Collection: Book
The printed wrappers which originally accompanied each part as it was published serially provide the further information that the work was etched 'Under The Superintendence Of George Cooke' (E.W. Cooke's father), was published by J. & A. Arch, Cornhill, Carpenter & Son, Bond Street, Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown and Green, Paternoster Row, Moon, Boys and Graves, Waterloo Place, Pall Mall, Moon of Threadneedle Street, J. Allen, Birmingham, Curtis of Plymouth, Deightons of Cambridge, Wakeman of Dublin and George Cooke of Hackney, and was dedicated to and patronized by the Duke of Clarence (afterwards King William IV).
E.W. Cooke early became one of Britain's most admired marine-painters. The meticulous drawings which he published in the 1830s form a loving record of a kind of shipping that would change rapidly during the course of the century.
