DETAILS

This detailed map of Andalusia is from the now lost map by Spanish royal cosmographer Jeronimo de Chaves. It is centered on Seville and includes the Bay of Cadiz.

It is a finely-engraved depiction of topography and features a sea battle and several monsters off Cadiz. Each corner is adorned with a cartouche or compass rose.

This is the second state with stippling added in the seas.

Verso text: French.
