Dissegno del Forte di Monte Spiz Preso Dal Gran Marescialle Lubomirschi.
Rare engraved map. 310 x 385mm (12¼ x Margins trimmed for binding, bottom right corner torn off.
A plan of the capture of the island fort 'Monte Spiz' ('Monspiz' in the key) by the Polish nobleman Jerzy Sebastian Lubomirski (1616-67). Although we cannot identify the place, it is likely to be one of the battles of 'Lubomirski's Rebellion' (1665-6), in which he forced King John II Casimir to give up his attempted political reforms. The map was published in one of the military histories of Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato (1606-78), an Italian professional soldier who fought in the Thirty Years' War.
