Very fine and large sea chart of the coast of Portugal and northern Spain. Extends from Gibraltar to Villaviciosa and S. Vincent in the north. Eight coastal profiles. Very large and decorative cartouche and rhumb lines make this a very attractive chart.
Good impression and coloring on thick paper. Small pencil marks offshore appear to be a previous owner's navigation notes.
