Section through a first-rate, 1701
An impression of a first-rate, depicted as a cross-section profile of a wooden model. Although Phillips's main activity was as a military engineer, he was also familiar with ships, and in 1661 was appointed by the Duke of York as master gunner of the 'Portsmouth'. He therefore had both the interest and knowledge to create this cut-through section of an important ship, although the original purpose of the project is not known.
