A map of the campaigns of 1716 and 1717, showing the march routes and camps, with their dates, of the Imperial and Turkish armies. Austro-Turkish War (1716-18). Oriented with north to top.

The inclusion of the note, top right, ‘Cum Privilegio S.C.M.’ appears to be the only difference between the map described here and a possibly earlier state which lacks this note. Examples of the map lacking the note can be found in the collections of the University of Bern: Bern UB ZB, Sammlung Ryhiner: ZB Ryh 6504:21.

The present-day locations of the places shown in the insets are: Temeswar (Timişoara, Romania 45°45ʹ13ʺN 21°13ʹ33ʺE); Belgrad (Belgrade, Serbia 44°48ʹ14ʺN 20°27ʹ54ʺE); Semendria (Smederevo, Serbia 44°39ʹ46ʺN 20°55ʹ48ʺE); Pancsova (Pančevo, Serbia 44°52ʹ15ʺN 20°38ʹ25ʺE); Vipalanka (Banatska Palanka, Serbia 44°50ʹ43ʺN 21°19ʹ55ʺE); Sabatz (Šabac, Serbia 44°44ʹ48ʺN 19°41ʹ24ʺE); Orsava (Orşova, Romania 44°43ʹ31ʺN 22°23ʹ46ʺE); Peterwardein (Petrovaradin, Serbia 45°14ʹ48ʺN 19°52ʹ46ʺE).
