Manuscript Map of Cadiz
French pen and ink manuscript map of Cadiz, Spain ca. 1808. Scale: "Une mille." Interestingly, for a map associated with a naval officer, there is little hydrographic detail or soundings as there might be in a nautical chart , but instead a great deal of topographic detail about the surrounding area. Fourteen key locations are noted by lettering and described by a legend at the left of the map. Decorative compass rose denotes north to the upper left.
