Antique wood block prints of ships

Original 125-160 year old wood block prints from various publications such as
The Illustrated London News, Gleason's Magazine, Leslie's Magazine, etc., from the 1850s-1880s.

All prints are adhered to thick card stock, as the paper used during this time period was extremely thin and in need of additional support. Sizes vary and are given below the thumbnail images.

Some foxing or other age-related issues may be present.
