This detailed map of the Iberian peninsula is based on the observations of Rodrigo Mendes Silva and Guillaume Delisle. The map is densely engraved with information and features a large title cartouche with a lavish scene of King Philip V with his courtiers.
There is a repaired tear that extends nearly to the centerfold from the left. The paper is sound, but original color is faded and there are a few light spots.
