Isole Canarie Possedutte da S.M. Cattolica

This item has been sold. Please check our homepage for currently available maps.
Coronelli's wonderfully decorative map of the Spanish Canary Islands ("a possession of His Catholic Majesty"), Madeira and part of the African coastline. The right side of the map is occupied by a pair of dramatic drapery insets: the top one featuring the island of Madeira divided into two counties; the bottom one, a plan of Funchal, Madeira's capital, with ships in the harbor. Adding to the map's appeal are two splendid title and mileage-scale cartouches.
