A very fine rare map of the region of Andalusia in southern Spain first published at an unknown date. The scale of the map is quite wonderful extending from west of Cadiz to east of Almeria taking in the cities of Seville, Cordova, and Granada inland. Two ornate title cartouche are found, one written in French, and the other in Spanish dedicated to the King of Spain, Felipe V. He reigned from 1700-24. Jean Baptiste Nolin (1657-1708) was a geographer, engraver and publisher on the Rue St. Jacques in Paris. This example was most likely bound into ‘Le Theatre du Monde’, his atlas first published in 1707. The left side title bears the additional imprint of Jean Leonard in Brussels, he is not recorded at all in Tooley’s Dictionary of Mapmakers. Shirley ‘Atlases in the British Library’ T.NOL 2a II no. 19 & 20.
