Rare separately issued plan / view of Vienna, published in Vienna by Heinrich Schmidt and Albert Camesina.

This unusual work presents a rounded view of the area outside of Vienna's city walls, at the time of the Turkish siege of Vienna in 1683. Vienna is surrounded by encampments and fortified positions, identifying various positions.

The plan is dedicated to Ernst Rüdiger von Starhemberg (1638-1701), the defender of the second Turkish siege of Vienna in 1683, Imperial General during the Great Turkish War and President of the War Council, who was awarded the Order of the Golden Fleece in December in 1683.
