This scarce map of the Iberian Peninsula delineates the various regions of the Order of Saint Augustine in Spain, Portugal and the Balearic Islands. The title cartouche includes the Augustinian coat of arms. The map includes an extensive legend, identifying the various types of colleges, convents, monasteries, hospitals, and other ecclesiastical centers. An inset shows the Canary Islands. The map was separately issued and is thus scarce and rarely seen on the market.

A dark impression with bold original color, minor soiling, a few tiny spots of foxing, and one tiny wormhole along the centerfold only visible when held to light.
