An original 18th century copper engraved antique map of Lerida or Lleida and the surrounding area of Catalonia, Spain.

This fascinating map depicts the military positions around Lleida during the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714) in which Spanish and French forces united in a struggle to unite their two countries under one monarch.

This potentially massive combined power of Spain and France was opposed by several European forces including Britain, the Dutch Republic, Portugal, the Duchy of Savoy and Spanish forces opposed to unification, usually refered to as "The Allies".

A numbered and lettered key is displayed in an elaborate cartouche and identifies the battle positions taken up during the seige.

.A crisp dark impression on robust hand laid paper, with foldlines as issued, blank verso.

Fine condition other than some faint spots of browning and toning. The lower margin is trimmed into the title area as issued..Free of repairs or restoration.
