Relation de la Victorieuse Bataille donnee pres Malplaquet & Longueville
Issued 1709 Amsterdam by N. Visscher
Rare antique engraved broadside battle plan/ map printed in the early 18th century.
In Fair to Good condition, light minor age wear, several old tape repairs to short tears done on back along edges, couple old paper repairs along edges as well, couple small chips in blank margins, sheet displays mostly minor light age staining and wear.
Interestingly, the top map portion is engraved separately, the descriptive text portion below it was printed separately and affixed long ago as issued by the publisher.
However, given the fact it may well have been produced/ originally issued for loose separate sale and only later bound into an atlas, it is in entirely accepatable condition, overall remaining mostly clean and visually attractive.
Pleasing example of this very scarce original antique broadsheet map which may well have been issued separately.
Sheet measures c. 23 34" H x 20 W
Engraved area measures c. 15 1/4" H x 18 3/4" W.
