    From a series of twelve prints documenting the Siege of Havana in 1762, the last major operation of the Seven Years War. The Siege of Havana was prompted by Spain's entry into the War in support of France. The British government retaliated by attacking Spanish overseas possessions, including an amphibious attack on Havana, beginning in March 1762. One print shows the shore landing and marching of troops toward Fort Cojimar on June 7. The other shows the assembly of the fleet. Both views based on drawings from eyewitness sketches made during these events by Lieutenant Philip Orsbridge, who had served at Havana. Orsbridge engaged P.C. Canot and James Mason to engrave them as a set of a total of twelve prints, which he published. British forces captured Havana in August and dealt a serious blow to the Spanish Navy. Havana was later returned to Spain under the 1763 Treaty of Paris that ended the Seven Years War.
