This is a fine 1750 map of Spain and Portugal by Robert de Vaugondy. It covers the Iberian Peninsula including the islands of Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza and depicts the provinces as they appeared when the map was drawn. The most prominent provinces are New and Old Castile, at the center of the map. A former kingdom, this area eventually merged with its neighbors, and today comprises the autonomous region of Castile y Leon in the northwest, and Castilla-La Mancha and Madrid, in the center and south of the country. Many of the provinces appear in their modern configuration. The map renders the entire region in extraordinary detail offering both topographical and political information with mountains beautifully rendered in profile. A beautifully engraved title cartouche in included in the bottom right quadrant. The map was drawn by Robert de Vaugondy in 1750 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.
