This detailed map shows the region embroiled in the battles of the War of Spanish Succession in the Po River valley in northern Italy. The numerous fortifications in the region are boldly delineated including Milan, Cremona, Piacenza, Verona and Brescia.
Good impression and original color with some light scattered foxing, mostly in wide margins. There are some old pencil notations in the lower margin dated 1848-49. The lower margin and been extended even wider for inclusion in a composite atlas at some point in its past. There are some old paper repairs along the centerfold and in the margins.
