Matted and reading for framing. An exceptional example. 1747 Print. We have more books available by this author!. Matted to 9 1/2 x 7 (mat measures 11 5/8 x 9). Labeled Tome IV. No. 4, indicating position in the original work. French text. A birds'-eye view of the fort complete with scale and latitudinal coordinates. This is a fairly complex fort, comparatively, with a structure of numerous apartments and barracks, a magazine, a court and a chapel, defended by an array of three towers and two large bastions (interestingly labeled as 'Eperon' and 'Pointe de la Montagne Verte' on this plan). The fort is flanked on two sides by water, and numerous batteries for canonry line these walls, and also the north wall.
