RIEGEL, Christoph. [A broadsheet plan of the Siege of Prague in 1742]
Verbesserter Grundriss der Königl. Bohmischen Haupt Stadt Prag mit der Königl. Ungarschen Belagerung und attaquen A. 1742. Nürnberg: Christoph Riegel, c.1750. 590 x 490mm. Binding folds flattened, a few small repairs.
A detailed plan of Prague showing the positions of the Austrian soldiers as they besieged the French army occupying the city during the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-8). Underneath is a view of the Austrian camp as they bombard the city. The siege lasted six months, but a French column of 16,000 men managed to slip past the rather complacent Austrian besiegers and escape. The remaining troops, the ones not able to make the escape, left the city with the honours of war. This plan was originally published during the siege, with no mention of the escape: this state has the word 'Verbesserter' ('improved') added to the title but no other obvious edits.

A scarce map of the Battle of Toplitz, Bohemia, on 2nd August 1762 (not the 20th) during the Seven Years' War, published in Raspe's 'Schau Platz des gegenwaertigen Kriegs' (Plates illustrating the Current Wars). The Prussians under Friedrich Wilhelm von Seydlitz (1721-73, regarded as one of the greatest German cavalry commanders) moved into Bohemia, and were met by the Austrians under Brigadier Löwenstein, who were in good defensive positons around Toplitz (Teplice). The Prussians attacked at 4pm, but Seyditz had neither sufficient troops or ammunition to dislodge the Austrians and by 8am the Prussians withdrew.
