On July 25, 2008, the Toledo-Lucas County Pub- lic Library unveils a nearly 200-year-old model war- ship on long-term loan by the LeBoutillier family. This 11:00AM event takes place at the Children’s Li- brary at Main Library, 325 Michigan St., Toledo.
LeBoutillier family and Li- brary officials will speak during the news conference about the recently refur- bished model, which fea- tures detailed masterwork and represents a two-deck, 60-cannon fighting ship. The public is welcome to
The model was built in 1820 by Thomas LeBoutillier, who lived on the English Channel island of Guernsey, located some 30 miles from the north coast of France and 70 miles from the south coast of En- gland.
The French model warship’s measurements are 65 inches x 82.5 inches x 17.5 inches and it is lo- cated in the Read Aloud Room in the Children’s Li- brary. A special cabinet was built to house the recently refurbished model, known as a war frigate.

The model warship, known for its painstakingly detailed rigging, has had many travels. In 1912, it was donated to the Metro- politan Museum of Art. In 1931 The Marine Museum of New York City borrowed it for an exhibit on the his- tory of New York’s port. Damaged, it was returned to the Metropolitan Mu- seum in 1942.
In 1953 the family re- quested the model back. Philip LeBoutillier Jr. oversaw an extensive restoration by Gael Fisher and placed it in the Toledo Zoological Society Mu- seum.
In 1990 it was moved to the Melvin Pelfrey Build- ing. In 1994 Philip LeBoutillier, Jr., provided it on permanent loan to the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. The model war frigate spent time in the late 1990s on display in the Library’s Local His- tory Department before being refurbished for its current display in Children’s Library.
