Impressive plan of the siege of 1747

„Plan De la forte Ville de Berguen op den Zoom avec ses Lignes, Attaques et le Fort Steenberguen“. Large map of the surroundings of Bergen and Steenbergen with the parallels of the siege of 1747 accompanied by a key A to Z (tz), 1-14 and a-f. Copper engraving in original colour by Matthäus Seutter after a design by Albert d’Herbort, printed from 2 plates on 2 sheets joined and published by Matthäus Seutter himself, Augsburg 1747 or shortly later. (PM) 48, 5 x 110 cm.

Sandler, Seutter, Verlagsübersicht bis 1760, Nr. 275. Most probably first and only state, without the earlier privilege (gained in 1740/42). - Splendid original body colour on the map. Fine dark and even impression of the uncoloured cartouche with monogram “L.F.L.”(probably initials of the draughtsman). Full impression of the plate on strong laid paper with original white margins. Centre- and two additional soft folds (because of its size the map was folded in). A copy in top condition.
