A decorative map of the Spanish region of Catalonia that covers the Mediterranean coastline from the French border via Barcelona to Tortosa. The map is filled with detail of topography, towns, roads, schools, churches and fortified cities. The cartouche incorporates the scale of miles and is richly ornamented with mermaids, Neptune, cherubs and a trumpeting angel representing fame.
Nice old color and a great impression, with one light crease.
