PRICE, Charles & Senex, John. [Uncommon two-sheet antique map of Belgium]
A New and Correct Map of the Ten Spanish Provinces According to the new observations communicated to the Royal Society at London and to the Royal Academy at Paris. London: Charles Price, John Senex & John Maxwell, c.1711. Original outline colour. Two sheets conjoined, total 660 x 960mm. Some restoration, as usual with these large maps.
An early example of this large antique map of Belgium, drawn by Price and engraved by Senex. Their partnership did not last later than 1711, after which Senex issued many of their maps in his 'English Atlas' from 1714. The title is within an illustration of siege warfare, with both wall design and weapons. At the time of publication the War of the Spanish Succession was at its height; at the end the Spanish Provinces had become Austrian. Around the coastline of Picardy is a line marking the mistaken coastline according to Sanson, with a note "N.B. That all Maps Printed for H.Jaillot and P. Mortier and Brought to England for Corret Maps are only Copies from Sanson with all his Errors and several by them Added not to be found in Sanson". The maps of the Jaillot/Mortier "Atlas Nouveau" were the only ones rivalling this series in size, so this is a very obvious attempt to discredit them.

KITCHIN, Thomas. [A wall map of the British Flanders Campaign of the French Revolutionary War]
A New Map of the Netherlands or Low Countries, with the South Part of the Provinces of Holland, Utrecht, & Gelders, and the whole of Zeeland. London: Laurie & Whittle, 1794. Original full body colour. Four sheets, dissected and laid on linen as issued. Total 980 x 1210mm. A few signs of use.
A folding map of the Austrian Netherlands, published during the Flanders Campaign of the French Revolutionary War. The large vignette above the title shows the Siege of Valenciennes in 1793, in which the British and Austrians under Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany, took the city from the Republicans. Frederick, shown here on horseback, waving his hat, was welcomed by the French population, who tore down the Republican Tricolour and proclaimed him King of France. Unfortunately this was one of the few successes of the campaign: the following year the Coalition was forced to retreat, reaching Bremen in Hanover in the Spring of 1795, leaving the Dutch Republic in the hands of France. This is an unusual presentation of this map: normally it is found in Laurie & Whittle atlases with basic outline colour, so this example seems to have been published in the short period of Allied success, possibly for a serving officer.

A scene of the final stages of the Battle of Waterloo, with Napoleon riding away on Marengo, realising the campaign was lost.
