Eric Ravilious was appointed a War Artist in February 1940. In August that year he moved to HMS Dolphin, the submarine base in Gosport, Hampshire. He produced two series of five lithographs, the first set predominantly blue/yellow and the second blue/brown. No publisher in wartime was prepared to print them in book form and they were sold as extremely limited prints. This is the first publication as a book. Uncommon.
