Carte du Royaume d'Aragon... Theatre de la Guerre d'Espagne. Paris, 1719. Dissected and laid on linen, total 890 x 790mm. Splits in folds of linen.
A rare antique map of the Aragon region, once owned by Honoré Charles Michel Joseph Reille Marshal of France, who campaigned in the area during the Peninsula War. Although it was originally published during the War of the Quadruple Alliance (1718-20), in which Britain, France, Austria and the Dutch Republic rounded on Philip V of Spain because of his expansionist plans in Italy, it was still an important map during the Peninsula War. Reille (1775-1860), was an extremely important figure in Napoleon Bonaparte's army: he was Commander of the Army of Portugal at Vitoria during the Peninsula War, and commanded the II Corp (25,000 men) at Waterloo. He was later made a Maréchal of France and is buried in Pére Lachaise cemetary in Paris in the tomb of his father-in-law, Maréchal Messéna.
