A detailed plan of the Battle of Denain, 24 July 1712, part of the War of the Spanish Succession. On one side was Eugene of Savoy's army and the Dutch commanded by the first Duke of Albermarle (Arnold van Keppel, a favourite of William of Orange); on the other the French under Marshal Claude Louis Hector de Villars. The French surprise attack succeded and Albemarle and his staff were taken prisoner, with some 4,100 troops. Eugene's army managed to escape, but the blow to the Allies allowed the French to recover much of the territory they had lost. T. Johnson published an account of Denain in 1713, 'avec une carte', apparently this one. All other examples of this map are later printing by Neaulme, 1747, with Johnson's name erased.
