Nr. 1057: Carte des Isles..
"Carte des Isles de Majorque, Minoroue, et Yvice”. The archipelago from Formentera to Menorca with two insets showing the bay of Mahon and the Eastern coastline of Spain. Copper engraved map with original outline colour after Bellin by Paolo Santini, Venice c. 1784. (PM) 45 x 57, sheet c. 53 x 73 cm.
Detailed map of the islands. The plan of Mahon with a key a-q to the fortifications at the entrance of the bay. - Full impression of the plate on Venetian laid paper with watermark “3 Mezzelune”, wide original margins. A marginal tear in lower centrefold backed. Otherwise a fine impeccable example of this attractive map of the Baleares.
