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.
A map of the southern Indian subcontinent and part of Sri Lanka for Hinton's Universal Magazine. Colour washed according to nationality. The subcontinent was little explored at the time, and it is difficult to trace the origin of many of the place names present, but some may derive from the text 'Travels of Pietro Della Valle in India' from 1664. 2 compass roses adorn the map to aid in practical marine navigation.

This map shows a small, historical snapshot of an important area at the beginning of a war that would change the world.
