A map of part of northern France showing the theatre of war in 1792. French Revolutionary Wars (1792-1802): War of the First Coalition (1792-8). Oriented with north-north-west to top (cardinal points).

The imprint 'chez l'auteur' may refer to the Soeurs Lemay (or le May), 'libraires & marchands d'estampes, rue de Loxum'.

Hand-colouring is used to distinguish armies and the boundaries of Austrian and French territory. This map shows the area of the first campaign of the wars, in Northern France, between the French national army and the Combined army of the Prussians, Austrians, and Hessians.
