Prints of Our Navy by Frederick S. Cozzens


Prints by Fred. S. Cozzens. From Our Navy. Its Growth and Achievements. Hartford: American Publishing Company, [1892]-1897. All ca. 7 3/4 x 12 1/4. Chromolithographs. Full margins, some with light spotting. Otherwise, very good condition.

Frederic S. Cozzens (1856-1928) is considered to be one of the best American nineteenth century marine illustrators. He is first known to have sketched marine scenes as early as 1868 and he contributed many illustrations to such publications as Harper's Weekly, Daily Graphic, and Leslie's Magazine. Known best for his depiction of yachting scenes, Cozzens drew all types of watercraft, including naval images such as this. His first publication was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races, which contained 27 chromolithographs, and his work was so well received that Cozzens produced four other series of prints: Typical American Yachts (1886); Yachts and Yachting (1887); Our Navy, Its Growth and Achievements (1892); and Old Naval Prints (1892). These are nice examples from his work, Our Navy, illustrating the American Navy just before the turn of the century. Each image shows identified ships of the navy in port or on the high seas. The accurate and detailed illustrations of the older sailing ships and the newer iron clad steamers makes these as historically fascinating as they are attractive.
