'Morning after a storm'
Title page from A narrative of the building and a description of the construction of the Edystone lighthouse with stone, by John Smeaton (London, 1791). The page includes an illustration of the third lighthouse built upon the Eddystone Rocks, near Plymouth, engulfed by a wave on the morning after a storm. The third lighthouse was built following the destruction of earlier versions designed by Henry Winstanley (1644-1703), and John Rudyard (or Rudyerd; 1650- ca.1718). The Royal Society recommended the civil engineer John Smeaton (1724-1792) for the job; his lighthouse was completed in 1759.
Original: line engraving. 1789
