This is a beautiful example of Alexandre Delamarche's 1850 map of Spain and Portugal. It covers all of Spain and Portugal from the Pyrenees to the Strait of Gibraltar and includes the Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Majorca, and Minorca. As this map was printed liberal sentiments within Spain were gaining popularity. This eventually led to the Progressive Biennium, in which the Progressive Party tried to replace the conservative liberalism of the Moderate Party with more radical liberalism. Throughout, the map identifies various cities, towns, rivers, mountain passes and an assortment of additional topographical details. Political and regional borders are highlighted in outline color. This map was issued by Delamarche as plate no. 27 in his Atlas Delamarche Geographie Modern.
