This is a very rare prospect view of Gibraltar. It illustrates the massive fortifications with an extensive key at bottom, in French and German. The bay is filled with a variety of ships including several of the floating batteries which were used in the Great Siege of Gibraltar.
Trimmed to neatline with some minor soil throughout.
