A NEW MAP OF THE KINGDOM OF PORTUGAL DIVIDED INTO ITS PROVINCES, FROM THE LATEST AUTHORITIES.
A fine map of the kingdom of Portugal with part of Spain. Title at top left with scales below. John Cary was considered ‘the most representative, able and prolific of English cartographers’. Tooley says, ‘As an engraver he was elegant and exact with fine clear lettering and great delicacy of touch’. When the Ordnance Survey began accurately mapping the UK, they used John Cary’s style as the basis for their work.
