Beautifully engraved plan of the fortified town of Rutkioping on the island of Langeland. Fully engraved sea with two large rowboats filled with sailors engaged in a ferocious battle at close range. With a scroll-style cartouche, compass rose and picture frame borders. A lovely view from Pufendorf's chronicle on The Northern Wars and military campaigns of Sweden's King Charles X.
Lovely impression on fine paper with wide margins.
