An interesting chart of the strategic strait between Africa and Europe. The coastline is engraved to depict the forts and cities. The sea in between is marked with those areas affected by tides, with descriptive tables inset. This map was included in Volume IV to accompany "A Draught of the Streights of Gibralter…" by Capt. Richard Bullard.
Nice impression with slight uneven toning.
