Set of three (3) antique United States Maritime Flag Book Pages from 1882:
- Siam, Society Islands, Switzerland
- Tripoli, Tunis, Turkey
These illustrations are taken from a book published by the U.S. Secretary of the Navy in 1882 titled
“The Miscellaneous Documents of the House of Representatives for the First Session of the Forty-Seventh Congress, 1881-82”.
The title page also states:
Flags of Maritime Nations.
From the Most Authentic Sources.
Prepared By Order of the Secretary of the Navy by the Bureau of Navigation.
**These are the ORIGINAL book pages, not a scanned copy.**
These prints are each 11 x 7.75 inches.
These illustrations show their age and are a perfect choice if you are looking for something that is authentic and well over 100 years old. Expect tears or nicks, foxing, yellowing from age, and evidence of prior water damage along the top. These all lend themselves to the rustic, authentic look of these prints.
Suitable for framing or for use in paper craft projects. Or scan the pages, clean them up, and make prints!
