      These are probably the Mangin ones, are they? Executed by a naval
      parson; though an interesting record of life on board at first hand
      by one who had lived it, he was certainly no Nicholas Pocock, one
      must concur.

        For example, the Purser by Rowlandson can be found on page 102 of Lavery's
        'Nelson's Navy'. The artist drew his own version for the 'Illustrated
        Companion' and it's somewhat harder to make out the face and details.
        Actually titles it 'A Purser, after Rowlandson'. A lot of renditions are
        done, some good and some.....

        But there are a lot of diagrams, tables, other drawings and pictures. Nice
        to have.
