    De Sleutel-Reeks des Vreedes te same gevoegd van het zeer groot Getal van de Vaandels, Standaarden en Ketel-trommen, in de laatste oorlog door de Hollanders veroverd, en in 't Hof van Holland, ten praal, opgehange: in de legers getekend. Theatre des Trophees Pacifiques qui contient le Tres Grand Nombre des Enseignes Etandars et Timbales que ls Hollandois ont pris dans la derniere guerre et qu'on a suspendis dans la Cour d'Hollande: dessiné ds ls armees.
    Amsterdam: Gerard van Keulen, 1713. Original colour. 505 x 585mm.

    A record of 175 flags, standards and kettle drums taken by the Dutch from the French, Spanish and Bavarian armies fighting in the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-13) and exhibited in the Hof van Holland. Each is marked with the former owner and the battle in which it was taken, including Ramillies Oudenarde and Bouchain, all fought with the Duke of Marlborough as commander-in-chief.
    Of interest is the key of engraving conventions that allowed a colourist to paint the flags correctly without a sample.
