Fine, decorative map of the southeastern part of Spain from the Strait of Gibraltar to Alicante, including Marbella, Malaga, Sevilla, Granada and Almeria. The map is richly adorned with a title cartouche, scale of miles cartouche featuring a cartographer, two coats of arms, two compass roses and a sea battle. A legend at bottom identifies archbishoprics, bishoprics, and universities. French text on verso.
Lovely old color with wide margins, a few small spots, and short centerfold separations in top and bottom blank margins. There are a few abrasions, a small damp stain, tiny tears and chips all confined to blank margins, far from map image.
