This terrific, large map of the Iberian peninsula includes the Balearic Islands and part of the northern coast of Africa. This is Homann's first, and most visually impressive map of Spain and Portugal. It is filled with his typical level of detail , which includes early roads, and adorned with a marvelous pictorial cartouche. The scene shows the launching of the massive Spanish Armada. A cherub at bottom displays the royal arms for Spain and Portugal.
A fine impression on a bright sheet with minor extraneous creasing at top center.
