Description

A rare 18th c. manuscript plan of Breda, a fortified city of strategic military and political significance but mostly mapped in the 17th century. Between 1746 and 1748 a series of negotiations between representatives of Great Britain and France, known as The Congress of Breda, took place in that town. They were aimed at bringing an end to the War of the Austrian Succession, and created foundations for the peace settlement at the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle.
