Battle of Maestricht, 1732 An engraved black and white map of the battlefield of the Battle of Maestricht in Belgium from Paul de Rapin's, The History of England written in French by Mr. Rapin de Thoyras. Translated into English with Additional Notes by N. Tindal. London: 1732. The map shows the positions of the Army of Two Crowns in exhaustive detail and has a wonderful title cartouche in the upper left section with two legends outlining the positions of Allies, Cavalry and Artillery in Battle. Special Note: The maps listed represent battles that took place during the War of Spanish Succession (1701-1713) concluded by the Treaties of Utrecht. The war resulted from a dispute over who should inherit Spain and its possessions after its Habsburg rulers became extinct in 1700. The last Habsburg king of Spain, Charles II (d. 1700) had left the throne to his closest relative in female line: Philippe de France, duke of Anjou, grandson of Louis XIV (Felipe V of Spain). The closest relatives in male line, the Habsburgs of Austria, disputed this claim, and many European nations did not want to see French princes reigning over both kingdoms. The Utrecht treaties recognized Felipe V of Spain, but transferred the Spanish possessions in the Netherlands and Italy to Austria and to Savoy. To reach the goal of separating the crowns of France and Spain, the treaties required Felipe V to relinquish all claims to the French throne, and the remaining French princes to relinquish all claims to the
Spanish throne.
Condition: Good, small top and left margins shaded water mark
down the middle.
