Par le S.r de Beaulieu Ingenieur et Geographe ordinaire du Roy et de M.r le Duc d'Angulen avec privilege de sa Maieste 1646. N. Cochain Sc.
Etching from three plates, on three sheets conjoined, scarce. total 440 x 610mm. Joins loose, trimmed to border at bottom, thread margins on left, a small tear.
An amalgam of a prospect of Ypres with a the decorative medallion portrait of Louis de Bourbon, Prince of Condé (1621-86) when still Duc d'Enghien, from a similar prospect of Mainz. It shows Ypres during the Thirty Years' War, with skirmishes on the fields in front of the city and was drawn by Sebastian de Pontault Beaulieu (c. 1612-74), a military engineer who drew plans of the fortifications of the cities of Europe. The view is within a separately-printed frame-like border (a feature than make Beaulieu's plans instantly recognisable), which has been cut down to find the smaller Ypres prospect.
