An Accurate Representation of the Floating Machine Invented by the French for Invading England

Freville

Another print responding to the invasion scare of early 1798 and the rumours of an enormous raft that the French were supposedly constructing on the Channel coast in order to land vast numbers of troops (see also PAH7426). Here it is claimed that the vessel could carry 60,000 troops, though it is difficult to see how it could be believed that such a bizarre, Heath Robinson contraption as this could ever put to sea. Combining wind and watermills, with an enormous 'Gothic', Bastille-like tower and castle in the centre, it seems to recall contemporary fantasies about the appearance of the Ark.
