About

An 18th century map of Spain and Portugal with attractive original hand-coloring entitled "Hispaniae et Portugalliae Regna" by Nicolaes Visscher II (1649-1702) in the 17th century, but published by Peter Schenk, Junior in Amsterdam in 1725. The cartouche in the right lower corner depicts a coat of arms representing one combined kingdom of Spain and Portugal before their break-up. Puuti hold up the coat-of-arms on the right and a queen reaches for it on the left. The map includes portions of North Africa and the Strait of Gibralter. The map is presented in a cream-colored mat. The mat measures 26.5" x 30" and the sheet measures 21.75" x 26.375". There is a central fold, as issued. The lower portion of the fold is reinforced on the verso. There is a small paper defect at the lower edge of the fold and another at the edge of the right corner, as well as a few small tears along the lower edge, none affecting the map and all covered by the mat. There are a few small faint spots in the upper margin and on the left.
