Fascinating chart of the Low Countries depicting the various battles, both land and sea, between the late 1500's to the early 1700's. All the major fortified cities are graphically depicted with notations of battle dates. Large inset of the English Channel features more sea battles and the cartouche containing the arms of the provinces. A splendid chart providing a synopsis of history.
