Traitté des siéges et de l'attaque des places (1707)

A wonderful hand drawn illustration of miner's tools (Outils des Mineurs) from a hand written document on military technology written by Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) in 1700 or 1707. The document is addressed to Monseigneur Le Duc de Bourgogne (HERE).

Vauban was the architect of the UNESCO world heritage fortified town of Neuf Brisach.
