This is a scarce sea chart, engraved by Herman Moll, detailing the Atlantic coast of Europe from the Strait of Gibraltar to the southern coast of England and Ireland. It includes a large inset of the Bay of Cadiz, the great European center of the Spanish-American trade and site of an important battle in the War of the Spanish Succession.
Some light uneven toning with narrow but adequate margins.
