A very rare and attractive early 18th century map of Spain and Portugal which was published in Herman Moll's Twenty Four New and Accurate Maps of the Several Parts of Europe (London: H. Moll, 1707).

Herman Moll (c.1654-1732), born in either Germany or the Netherlands, came to London in the 1670s where he gradually established himself as one of the leading map publishers of the day. He was particularly noted for his contempt for plagiarists describing them amongst other things as 'ignorant pretenders'.
