HEYDEN, Christian Frederic von der. [The British Naval supremecy over France in the Seven Years's War]
Die durch die Engellænder beunruhigte Französische Küsten A.o 1758. [&] Brittische Übermacht zur See wieder Franckreich A.o 1759. Augsburg: Tobias Conrad Lotter, 1759. Original colour, 490 x 600 & 480 x 480mm. Good Dark Impression.
Scarce pair of maps of the Atlantic coasts of France, showing the British navy's domination of the seas during the Seven Years' War (1756-63). The first focuses of the Battle of Cartagena, 25th February 1758, in which Admirals Osborn and Saunders, blockading a French squadron sheltering in neutral Cartagena, saw off three ships attempting to reinforce the French. It also shows the routes of the 'Descents' (amphibious assaults) on St Malo and La Rochelle. The second shows the Battle of Quiberon Bay, 20th November 1759, in which the Royal Navy destroyed the fleet intending to collect the troops for the Duc de Choiseul's planned invasion of Britain. Both maps have finely-engraved vignettes depicting the battles and extensive keys listing the actions.
