Two fine maps describing important battles in the Northern Wars, known as The Deluge. The first map illustrates the Battle of Warsaw, which took place near Warsaw in July of 1656, between the army of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Swedish-Brandenburg forces. The second map is a bird's-eye plan of Cracow and the vicinity, which was occupied by the Polish-Lithuanian and Austrian troops in August 1657. Sizes vary slightly.
