This print shows several views of the hull and deck plans of this 120 gun first-rate ship of the line, including cross-sections, in the style of a ship model with a base.

The keel of the 'Nelson' was laid at Woolwich Dockyard on 14 November 1809. She was launched nine years later at Woolwich in July 1814. The launching was a gala affair with the Royal family in attendance, and over 20,000 spectators.
