This is an attractive 1751 map of the southern portion of Portugal by Robert de Vaugondy. It covers southern Portugal from Abrantes southward to Sanlucar de Barrameda and inland as far as Carabilla. The map renders the entire region in extraordinary detail offering both topographical and political information, with mountains rendered in profile. A beautifully engraved title cartouche in included in the bottom left quadrant. The map was drawn by Robert de Vaugondy in 1751 and published in the 1757 issue of his Atlas Universal. The Atlas Universal was one of the first atlases based upon actual surveys. Therefore, this map is highly accurate (for the period) and has most contemporary town names correct.
