This is an attractive and very detailed map of the stronghold of Gibraltar. It shows the well-fortified peninsula with all its buildings, barracks, roads and batteries noted. The map is dedicated to the Earl of Portmore who was Governor of Gibraltar between 1713 to 1720, shortly after Spain ceded Gibraltar to Great Britain in the Treaty of Utrecht. North is oriented to the left. Published in London in Thomas Salmon's Modern History: or the Present State of All Nations.
