Paris: Nolin, c.1701. Faint original outline colour. 255 x 345mm.
A map showing not just Italy south to Naples, but also Switzerland, France north to Paris and Austria north to Vienna. It was published near the start of the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14), when France went to war with Austria over whether a Habsburg or a Bourbon was going to rule. It carefully marks the roads from Paris to Italy, via the Alps and the coastal routes, as well as the routes the Austrian armies would take from Vienna. Unfortunately for the French the Imperial armies were led by Prince Eugene of Savoy, whose skill prevented the French using their superior resources. By the end of the war most of the Spanish possessions in Italy were ceded to Austria.
