Matthaus Merian began publishing the ‘Theatrum Europaeum’ in 1633, it was not finished until 1738 by which time 21 volumes had been issued including some 20,000 pages of text, 720 maps, plans, views and other engravings and nearly 700 portraits. This image depicts the battle between the Danish and Swedish on the River Lydde one cold day in December 1676. The Swedish apparently in the weaker position managed to pull off a remarkable victory.
