A New And Exact Map Of Spain & Portugal
H.Moll - London - - 98 x 61 - Original colour - An early issue of this fine two sheet map of Iberia and the Balearics with the added imprints of P.Overton, D.Midwinter and T.Bowles. The splendid title cartouche, at lower right, is surrounded by the arms of the sixteen kingdoms of Spain, surmounted by the lion of Leon and supported by martial weaponry at its foot. That design is visually balanced by an equally large embellished dedication panel to the Duke of Argyle - General of Her Majesty's Forces in Spain. It is typical of Hermann Moll's work that he also includes a lengthy "Advertisement" decrying the work of his competitors, whom he describes as "cheats" and "Ignorant Pretenders". - cf. Shirley, MABL, T.Moll-4a/b.
