New and Accurate MAP of the KINGDOMS of SPAIN, PORTUGAL, and Part of FRANCE; the Islands of MAJORCA, MINORCA, &c.
A colour washed map of the Iberian Peninsula and surrounding countries and waters engraved by R.W. Seale. A 16 point compass rose with 32 emanating rhumb lines show bearings throughout the Bay of Biscay and to the south of the important British naval base located in Minorca in the Mediterranean obtained after the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. The colouration of the maps is used to differentiate some political borders, despite the noticeable absence of colour for Spain and the northern coast of Africa; care should be taken not to confuse the island of Minorca or Gibraltar as a German territories. Among the several interesting spellings of place names is Tennis for Tunis. The map title is enclosed within a heavy scroll styled cartouche.
