Woodcut covering the coastline from the Lizard Peninsula in England to the Strait of Gibraltar. Perhaps due to space restrictions, the English Channel appears closed off between England and France. The map is accompanied by a written description of the movement of English fleets.
Two maps on one sheet-the upper being Spain and delineating the various provinces including Andalusia, Granada, Valencia, Catalonia and the islands of Majorca, Minorca and Ivica. The bottom map shows the Mouth of the River Tagus or Harbour of the City of Lisbon with a small inset view of Belem Castle. Sounding depth shown in fathoms.
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 Western Europe and North Africa around the end of the Seven Years War. As a chart coastal features are emphasized, and there is very little promoting figure/ground distinction save some light shading. Due to the small scale no soundings are shown; a few hazards and sand banks are displayed around Jersey and the English Channel. A 32 point compass rose shows rhumb lines around the Bay of Biscay, and the St. Georges and English Channels. The cartouche includes authority and is exceedingly elaborate with etches of sailing ships and sail boats, birds in flight, and vegetation.
A chart showing the coastline of Southwestern Europe and surrounding waters. Two large, crisscrossing compass roses show rhumb lines around the Bay of Biscay and the Mediterranean. The larger compass rose sites in the Mediterranean Sea. Many of the coastal annotations are perpendicular to the coastlines, reminiscent of the Thames school of mapmakers. Inland features are ignored save for major capitals. Perimeter scale bar in leagues.
