Note Bibliografiche

Bella pianta inc. in rame (cm. 56 x 68), parzialmente colorata e montata su tela, suddivisa in 12 riquadri, inc. da Jacowick su disegno di Craan (1776-1848). Ben conservata. La pianta è accompagnata da un foglio di testo (cm. 56,7 x 45,4) che contiene “Notice historique sur la Bataille de Waterloo.. Pour servir à l’intelligence du Plan dressé par W.B. Craan”. Con aloni. Entrambi conservati in una custodia in cartonato coevo (cm. 24x15). “In 1816 Willem Benjamin Craan, a Brussels-based surveyor and cartographer, published his "Plan du champ de bataille de Waterloo, avec notice historique". Craan, who was based in Brussels, consulted soldiers who had fought on both sides while preparing his plan, and the resulting map and account was so accurate it earned the approval of both the Prince of Orange, who had commanded the I Corps of the allied army at Waterloo, and his father, William I, while Tsar Alexander I was so taken with it that he presented Craan with a ring as a mark of his respect” (così X. Heuschling, “Notice biographique sur Craan”, in Bulletin du Bibliophile Belge (1850),VII, pp. 78-82). .
