An attractive and detailed map of Spain and Portugal by Emanuel Bowen (c.1693-1767) an English engraver, publisher and mapseller, active in London from about 1720. Bowen's prolific output both as engraver and publisher earned him recognition both in England and France, for he held the dual appointment of Engraver to both George II and Louis XV of France. Bowen engraved large numbers of maps for general atlases, geographical text-books and periodicals, particularly "The Complete System of Geography" and the "Universal History of the World", in which this map was published, and the small-format periodical "The General Magazine of Arts and Sciences". Bowen also produced a large number of English county maps. Bowen maps are typically clear yet detailed, and often found with decorative title cartouches, illustrated with relevant imagery. An interesting and decorative map, which includes inset images of the Harbour of Port Mahon and the Straits of Gibraltar, with the Spanish coast from Cadiz to Malaga.
