Attractive little fortification plan of Luxembourg has a drape-style cartouche containing a key locating 40 important places. This plan was published by C.M. Spanoghe in 1785 and is an anonymous copy of the Harrewijn plan from 1769. It can be distinguished by different spelling errors such as Roc Pelé instead of Rocq Pellé and on the left list, number 35 is Rod. du Groute instead of Redoute de Grônte, and some of the numbers of the 40 fortifications are missing on the plan.
