Original colour. 505 x 585mm.
A record of 175 flags, standards and kettle drums taken by the Dutch from the French, Spanish and Bavarian armies fighting in the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-13) and exhibited in the Hof van Holland. Each is marked with the former owner and the battle in which it was taken, including Ramillies Oudenarde and Bouchain, all fought with the Duke of Marlborough as commander-in-chief. Of interest is the key of engraving conventions that allowed a colourist to paint the flags correctly without a sample.
