A copperplate folding battle plan of Altenheim, on the east side of the river Rhine. With three pastedown overlays demonstrating the different positions of the French and Imperial armies.
The plan shows: fortress, battle grounds, forests, roads, rivers and place names. Mileage scale plain box title and a box containing a reference to the different positions of the armies. Jean de Beaurain was the Royal Geographer to King Louis XV of France.

The Battle of Konzer Brücke was fought as part of the Franco-Dutch War on August 11, 1675 and resulted in an Imperial victory. In 1675, Montecuccoli and Turenne had been moving between Philipsburg and Strasbourg for an advantage, each seeking to cover his own country and to live upon that of the enemy. At last Turenne prevailed and had the Imperialists at a disadvantage on the Sasbach, where, in opening the action, he was killed by a cannon-shot (27 July).
Devastated by the loss of their commander, the French hastily surrendered all their advantages, and Montecucculi sharply following up their retreat, and drove them over the Rhine and almost to the Vosges.
At the same time the Imperial forces under Charles IV, Duke of Lorraine were besieging Trier, which Turenne had taken in the autumn of 1673. Créquy was sent with 15,000 men and 11 guns to relieve the city. They were stopped at the bridge over the Saar River at Konz..
The Imperialists sent a force under Ottone Enrico Del Carretto, marquis of Grana, to occupy what is today known as the Grana-heights. Another force crossed the bridge at Konz and a third force crossed the river over a pontoon bridge. They attacked the French camp and an indecisive battle raged for three hours. Then Otto de Grana engaged his right flank on the right moment and the French fled the battlefield, leaving behind all their guns and wagons. The Germans pursued the French.

Créquy made his way into Trier to assume command, but was forced to surrender on September 9, 1675.
