A New and Exact Map of Spain
divided into its Kingdoms and Principalities etc...
A wonderful, large scale map of Spain and Portugal by the prolific and well regarded German émigré to London; Herman Moll. This wonderful map is embellished by a decorative title cartouche to ‘His Grace John, Duke of Argile &c General to His Majesties Forces in Spain..’ Each separate province, of Kingdom in Spain is delineated with outline colour. A truly magnificent title cartouche features a lion on top of the 15 different shields that represent the different divisions of the Kingdom of Spain. Other decorative features are weapons of war, including a cannon, and cannon balls, a shield, a breastplate and spears. Moll issues an interesting personal commentary in the lower left corner of the map.
