The Battle of Cuneo (Piemonte) after Jan van Huchtenburg. 1729

Jean Dumont

Jean Dumont Baron de Carlscroon (13 January 1667 –13 May 1727) was a French writer and historian. He followed the profession of arms but, not obtaining promotion as rapidly as he expected, left the service and travelled through different parts of Europe. He stopped in Holland intending to publish an account of his travels. But in the interval, at the request of his bookseller, he wrote and published several pamphlets, which were eagerly sought after, owing to the abrupt manner in which he treated the ministry of France. Thus deprived of all hope of employment in his own country, he thought of forming a permanent establishment in Holland and commenced a course of lectures on public law. The project succeeded far beyond his expectations, and some valuable compilations he published in the same period made him well-known in other countries. The emperor appointed him his historiographer and, some time afterwards, conferred on him the title of Baron de Carlscroon. He died in Vienna. (Wikipedia)

Dumont was also the author of Histoire Militaire du prince Eugène de Savoie...  published in two volumes in Den Haag in 1729.
