View of a Swedish gunboat in Polish waters, 1628

This drawing depicts a Swedish gunboat, which was probably part of the Swedish blockade of the harbours of Gdansk and Pillau. The drawing originates from a travel account from 1627-1628 by Abraham Boot. He was part of a Dutch diplomatic mission to the Polish court at Warsaw during the Swedish-Polish war in 1627-1628.
