4 DECKER, Paul. [The British attack on Majorca in 1706] 109


Description: DECKER, Paul. [The British attack on Majorca in 1706]
La Sommissione di Maiorca Isola Balearica nel Mare Meditterano... Augsburg, Jeremias Wolff, c.1720. Etching, 470 x 375mm. A few repaired tears in margins, one just enetring the printed area on the left hand side.
A scarce publication, showing the attack on Majorca by Admiral John Leake in September 1706, part of the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714), in which England gained both Gibraltar and Minorca. The central scene is surrounded by a rococo border with an inset map of the island and an Italian text description printed from a separate plate. This plate was etched by Johann August Corvinus after a painting by Paul Decker, and was published by Wolff in 'Repraesentatio belli, ob successionem in Regno Hispanico…', a history of the War of the Spanish Succession. The Italian text title is separately printed so the same plate could be issued in different languages.
