Superb engraving of the capture and sacking of Cadiz by an English fleet under the Earl of Essex, Lord Howard of Effingham and Francis Vere during the Anglo-Spanish War. The harbor is literally filled with ships engaged in battle. The plan of Cadiz is shown in bird's-eye form.
Excellent impression and color on watermarked paper with light toning along the edges of the sheet.
