QUACK, Jacob. [Wall map of the River Meuse from the Hook of Holland to Rotterdam]
Afbeeldinge van de Maes van de stadt Rotterdam tot in zee...Int licht gebracht door Jacob quacq postmeester der stadt Rotterdam met Octroy voor 15 Jaren 1665. Amsterdam: Reinier & Joshua Ottens, 1740. Four sheets, each 495 x 365mm (total if joined 495 x 1440mm)
A fine 4-sheet large map of the River Meuse (Maas) from the Hook of Holland upsteam to Rotterdam, decorated with a title cartouche featuring an allegorical figure of the river and a separate vignette of Neptune in his chariot. Jacob Quack (d. 1668), the postmaster of Rotterdam, produced a two-sheet 'Postcaert' of the river in 1665, primarily as an advertisment for his mail service from Rotterdam to the Indies. His work was not complete at the time of his death, so this is an adaptation, slightly updated.

SEUTTER, Matthäus. [Antique town plan of Maastricht]

A detailed antique map of Maastricht, showing the impressive defensive walls of Maastricht and Wyck, with a prospect of the city, and an extensive engraved text and key in French down the sides. It is likely that this old plan was prepared during the 'War of Austrian Succession' (1740-8) when Maastricht was a prime target for the French because of the city's strategic location. It fell to the French in 1748 but was returned according to the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle later in the year.

BOWLES, Thomas. [A rare antique plan of the siege of Bergen op Zoom in 1747]

Also of The French Trenches and Attacks during ye Present Siege. Being an exact copy of One lately sent from the Hague. London: Thomas Bowles & John Bowles, c.1747. 290 x 415mm. Some restoration.
A scarce broadsheet old battle plan of the strategic Dutch border fortress of Bergen op Zoom under seige by the French in 1747, during the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-8, part of a larger conflict that included England's 'War of Jenkins' Ear' with Spain & 'King George's War' with the French in North America). The garrison inside included British troops, including the 25th & 64th Foot (Loudon's Highlanders). This battle plan concentrates on the fortifications, which, built by Menno van Coehoorn at the beginning of the C17th, were believed to be impregnable. However, after seventy days, the French artillery breached the walls and their troops sacked the town. Loudon's Highlanders made a stand, fighting through the streets, but lost two-thirds of their number. It was reported that several thousand civilians were killed, which outraged European opinion. Following the defeat the Dutch were militarily exhausted, and the British joined negotiations at the Congress of Breda, leading to a treaty in 1748.
