This is an authentic antique map of the Strait of Gibraltar by Homann Heirs. The map was published out of Nuremberg in 1730.

This extremely attractive map of the Strait of Gibraltar was a collaborative effort between Jean de Petit (royal engineer and architect) and Johann Friedrich Weidler (mathematician and astronomer at Witenberg). The map covers southern Spain and the northern tip of Morocco, including the towns of Malaga, Marabella, Gibrantar, Algezira, Ceuta, Tangiers, and Cadiz to name a few. This lovely wash colored map exhibits great detail showing forts, cities, farms, mountains, local roads and rivers. The sea is embellished with a lovely compass rose and three sailing ships.

Condition: Map is in B condition, with some foxing along the left margin and a few separations in the same area.
