Plan of the siege of Turin by Prince Eugene on Sept. 7, 1706 here engraved by Isaac Basire. A small assumption is made in naming the engraver Isaac as the initial could be read as a 'J' for his son James who was not born until 1730. An explanation upper left identifies the key points of the map. From Nicolas Tindal's 'Continuation of Mr. Rapin's History of England'. Shirley, R.W. (BL Atlases) G.RAP 1a, no. 16.
