A fine map of Spain and Portugal, showing all the provinces. Three scales. John Cary is considered by some to be the finest of English cartographers. His maps appeal for their clarity and accuracy, and the precision of engraving. When the Ordnance Survey began accurately mapping the UK, they used John Cary’s style as the basis for their work.

Copper engraving. Original colour. Overall very good condition, some light offset. Size: 51.5 x 45.5 cm. (20 x 18 inches)
