An attractive and detailed plate from the "Espana Regional" atlas edited by Alberto Martin comprising maps of the Spanish provinces and African possessions. This plate shows, at a good scale the islands of Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura - one of the few maps to show these popular islands in such good detail. There is also a smaller inset map, bottom right corner, showing all the Canary Islands and the African coast.
