A rare broadsheet map published to illustrate accounts of the 1727 Anglo-Spanish War. The largest map shows the siege of Gibraltar, dedicated to Lord Portmore who, as governor of Gibraltar from 1713-20, had greatly improved the defences of the fortress. Underneath are: a plan of the Blockade of Porto Bello in Panama, in which the British didn't fire a shot but lost three-quarters of their men to disease; the Strait of Gibraltar; and a plan of Cartagena, the Spanish naval base.The letterpress text contains a key to the Gibraltar map in French and Dutch and a description in Dutch only.
