This large, rare chart is from the first Spanish sea atlas. It provides an excellent view of Ibiza and Formentera, the two Pine Islands in the Balearic Islands. Opposite the title cartouche is an inset plan of the harbor of Ibiza complete with extensive soundings and anchorages.
Faint toning and some creasing along the centerfold with a small repaired puncture in a blank area of the map just north of Formentera.
