A military history of the 17th century and the 18th century
Looks like an English version of this 19th-century work (4th edition, 1893):https://archive.org/details/diekriegswaffeni00demmuoft/page/n4See p. 526Apparently first published in 1869: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_Friedrich_DemminI doubt that the attribution of the said "war-hat" to the Great Elector of Brandenburg is correct, never seen this elsewhere (also, the battle of Fehrbellin took place in 1675, not 1677 as stated in the legend). Looks like an ordinary pikeman's pot of the TYW/ECW era, to me.
Just noticed that the Fehrbellin date is the correct one in the German version ...
