PLAN of PRAGUE
A plan and description of some of the military positions during the 1742 Siege of Prague that took place during the War of the Austrian Succession. A lettered key from A-M is explained on page 461. As Marshall de Broglie (Broglio) had escaped the city by September, the rendering likely represents some time between the Prussians began their siege in June, and September of 1742 before Belle-Isle assumed command of the French. There legend for the map can be found within the accompanying text.
The scale bars are in furlongs/English miles and Toises, and there is no graticule. Scale was calculated from the map's scale bar, and the coordinates were obtained via georeferencing.
