click here to view a large version in a separate window

A scarce plate illustrating, on two maps, the battles of Renee Duguay-Trouin and his enemies. Duguay-Trouin was a famous French corsair of Saint-Malo. His naval career led to his eventual appointment as "Lieutenant-General of the Naval Armies of the King". Engraved by Santiago Drouet this plate was published in "Recueil Des Combats De Duguay-Trouin Les Campagnes De Duguay-Trouin." The map to the left of the page shows the sites of Duguay-Trouin's battles in western Europe, western Africa and Brazil - he captured Rio de Janeiro in 1711. The larger map to the right of the pages shows "La Manche" in greater detail and marks the location of further battles. Attractive, scarce and important.
