- Manuscript plan showing the location of the French encampment and that of the Dutch camps of 1818, 1822 and 1828, near Zeist. In 1804 General Marmont set up his military camp on the heatherfields near Zeist. Originally called Camp Utrecht, the site was renamed "Austerlitz" in memory of Napoleon's victory at the Battle of Austerlitz (1805). It was later used by the Dutch army.The map based on the original maps of the French camp of Fèvre de Montigny and updated with the location of the Dutch camps, was made as a test piece by the 17-year-old infantry cadet jonkheer Adriaan Snoeck (1811-1890), son of the Dutch fortification engineer Matthias Adriaan Snoeck. Slightly soiled near the edges. Good condition.
