A detailed chart of the coast of Portugal from Cape Finisterre to Gibraltar, with large insets of the ports of Lisbon and Setuval, and of Cadiz Harbour. This chart is from the official 'Neptune Francois', issued for the French Admiralty, but is more commonly encountered in the pirate version by Alexis Jaillot and Pierre Mortier, published in Amsterdam the same year. Remargined at top and bottom, with small loss of printed border. An attractive example, oriented with north to the right.
