An antique engraving by C. J. Smith giving a representation of the French attack of 1514 on Brighton. The map reveals that it is not contemporary with the raid it depicts, as the ship types illustrated date from after 1514. Details include defence forces advancing down the road to the beach and a lit beacon that served to alert the locality. Map originally produced by Henry VIII's cartographer Anthony Antony in 1545. Circa 1832 with later hand colouring.
