A map of the Rhine (one of six sheets) showing the campaigns of the French and German armies in 1674 and 1675. Franco-Dutch War (1672-8). Oriented with north to top. For the other five sheets, see RCINs 724008.a-b, d-f.

A small flap, coloured in pale blue, and showing different details, is pasted to the base map, top right, at 'Hafft'. The map extends from the forest to the north-west of Rippersweiller (Reipertswiller, Alsace, France 48°55ʹ58ʺN 07°27ʹ54ʺE) in the top left corner to the woodlands east of Catbach (Gallenbach, Baden-Württemberg, German 48°44ʹ15ʺN 08°10ʹ45ʺE) in the top right corner, and from south-west of the Bois d'Abrecheville (Forêt d'Abreschviller, Lorraine, France 48°34ʹ31ʺN 07°10ʹ19ʺE), touching on the River Sarre (perhaps the River Soye), to Lohr (Lahr, Baden-Württemberg, Germany 48°20ʹ26ʺN 07°52ʹ08ʺE) in the bottom right corner.
