Boldly engraved bird's-eye plan of BarceloPlan of the City of Barcelonana. It shows a meticulously detailed walled city, surrounded with a patchwork of fields. Numerous fortifications are located, and there is a lettered key describing the main buildings and roads. Three sailing ships are shown in the harbor.
A nice example on watermarked paper with an archivally repaired tear in top blank margin. Narrow side margins and minor soiling.
