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 730086

  • Watermark: None visible

    Condition: crumpled and worn around the edges. Verso: heavy surface dirt along left edge, consistent with the map having been stored as a roll; right of centre, a heavily water-stained patch, perhaps from the removal of Cumberland's cipher label
