Caption

A dramatic view of the battle in 1558 in which France seized back Calais. England's last foothold on the French coast, which had been occupied for over two centuries. The harbour is well forward to the sea, while the town is effectively a fortified island. Image taken from Chales: il vero ritratto de Cales preso a Inglesi del Re Christianissimo l'anno MDLVIII. Originally published in 1602. Illustrated by Florimi.
