The British Admiralty c.1660, Wood Diorama -Sculpture, Rex Stewart
The British Admiralty c.1660, Wood Diorama -Sculpture, Rex Stewart
The wood used for this piece was pine with some available basswood. I was inspired to produce this piece upon viewing a painting that showed the British Admiralty centered around a ship model in their library during the mid-17th century. It was so intriguing that I challenged myself to create this work, in kind. History: Samuel Pepys, Secretary of the Admiralty under Charles II, kept an eye on pirates, but his gravest concern was Dutch Admirals de Ruyer and Van Tromp. Commercial rivarly with the Holland plunged England into three wars between 1652 and 1674. To wrest victory from defeat, England developed naval tactics that made broadsides more effective and built all-weather ships with increased firepower. In 1653 the Admiralty ordered that its ships give battle in a line. To ensure that these vessels in such a line performed equally, warships became increasingly standardized and divided into ratings. From a design standpoint the greatest problem was to pack three decks of heavy guns into strengthened hulls. Here, in this carving, I have Pepys at the far end of the table taking notes asthe Lords of the Admiralty study the scale model of a man-of-war, c.1660. This work is at a scale of 1:12.

Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin with Illustrations ( Illustrated plus Active Table of Contents and footnotes)
Kindle Description:
The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin ( Illustrated and with Active Table of Contents) by Benjamin Franklin himself is a fascinating read. Complete with Illustrations which cover his life and background, we gain amazing insight into the man, the inventor and the genius that was Franklin.

Part One of the Autobiography is addressed to Franklin's son William, at that time (1771) Royal Governor of New Jersey. While in England at the estate of the Bishop of St Asaph in Twyford, Franklin, now 65 year old, begins by saying that it may be agreeable to his son to know some of the incidents of his father's life; so with a week's uninterrupted leisure, he is beginning to write them down for William. He starts with some anecdotes of his grandfather, uncles, father and mother. He deals with his childhood, his fondness for reading, and his service as an apprentice to his brother James Franklin, a Boston printer and the publisher of the New England Courant.

Reactions to the work:
Franklin's Autobiography has received widespread praise, both for its historical value as a record of an important early American and for its literary style. It is often considered the first American book to be taken seriously by Europeans as literature. William Dean Howells in 1905 asserted that "Franklin's is one of the greatest autobiographies in literature, and towers over other autobiographies as Franklin towered over other men."
