Another view of the celebrated sea-serpent of 1848, as reported by sailors of The Daedalus, from The Illustrated London News 28 October 1848: 264. This must have been speculation, as it is drawn from a viewpoint the mariners could not have seen - with the ship in the backgound. 5 x 7 inches; drawn by an unknown artist and engraved on wood by Smythe.
