This handsome map of the province of Cadiz was published shortly after Gibraltar was captured in 1704 during the War of Spanish Succession by Anglo-Dutch forces, which is mentioned in the title. The map is fully engraved with topographical details and focuses on the area between the ports of Cadiz to Gibraltar, extending north to Medina-Sedonia and east to the Guadiaro River. Roads, towns, forts, beacons, fields, salt pans, and more are depicted. A numbered key at bottom right identifies locations within Gibraltar.
