Rare French & Indian War Battle Plan, showing the fortifications and battles fought at Louisbourg. The key at the bottom of the battle plan explains the various places on the plan. The plans were issued in Les plans de la guerre de sept ans contenans les batailles combats, prises de villes, camps etc. Frankfurt (1789-93 ?). The set is a retrospective of battles of the 7 Years War. Relatively little is known about the source of the maps or their makers, other than that the maps were apparently derived from French Manuscript maps drawn on the spot. A marvelous scarce battle plan.
