Plan der Bataille bey St Cast 4 Meillen von St Malo in Bretagne den 11 Sept: 1758 Zwischen den Engellandie und Franzoesischen Trouppen.
1760 - Nuremberg, Raspe, c.1760. Original colour. 230 x 370mm. Stitch holes in left margin. A scarce map of the British raid on St Cast in August 1758, published in Raspe's 'Schau Platz des gegenwaertigen Kriegs' (Plates illustrating the Current Wars). This was one of the 'Descents', lightning raids on the French coast championed by William Pitt in 1758. The first, on St Malo in June, had been a great success, as was another on Cherbourg in August. However this attack on St Cast in September was a disaster, as the French were better prepared, bringing the 'Descents' to an end. Despite this the effect on French morale meant the raids had been worthwhile.
