An interesting depiction of military architecture, its tools and instruments, all set upon an imaginary coastal/island plan. Fortresses are shown alongside the tools, such as mallets and masonry rules, that were used to build them. Ottens' bold and decorative Dutch title cartouche appears in the lower left hand corner of the map, whilst the text describing the objects, as well as a subsequent title, are in French.
