A very decorative map of southern Spain and the northern tip of Morocco, including Gibraltar, Cadiz, Malaga, Marbella, Algezira, Tetuan, Ceuta, Tangiers, Larache, etc. Highly detailed regional map, with interesting depictions of the mountains, and farming areas. Even local roads are put on!

Three ornate sailing ships in the Atlantic and a large compass rose. Attractive wash coloring. Several short printer’s creases, none of which significantly detracts from the image. A nice example of this scarce map.

This map was made by J.F. Weidler after J. de Petit, engraved by R.A. Schneider and published by the Homann Heirs in Nuremberg.
