Sketch sheer plan

This is one of ten sketch plans of a small Dutch-type bezan yacht which the Younger was designing for himself. They are identified by the coast of arms, a similar arms surrounded by the initials 'W. V. V J' being found in the form of a seal impressed on the stretcher of a painting formerly in the Ingram Collection, (this may refer to BHC0901). The date of the drawings in uncertain; the style might be as late as 1700 and the inscription 'op sij dun [? upside-down]' on PAF6571 also suggests a late date. PAF6562 is on paper the van de Veldes used in 1665, the form of the signature is quite as early as this and on this drawing there is the suggestion of a Dutch flag. PAH1853 and PAF6570, however, are on paper used in 1675.
