War of the Austrian Succession (1740-8)

Includes much of the mapping collected by William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, as Captain General of the British army

RCIN 731001

  • Watermark: None visible

    Condition: folded along dissection lines to the size of one panel; from the positioning of the inscriptions on the verso, the map was stored in this way from the beginning, possibly in a portfolio or in a slip case in Cumberland's library. Heavy surface dirt along one edge on the verso indicates that the map had subsequently been stored as a roll as, indeed, is indicated by the K.Mil. placing (1.Tab.1). Holes along the bottom edge of the linen backing do not go through the paper of the map. The two top sheets are crisp impressions from relatively unworn plates
