Description

Rare first edition of John Rocque's map of Minorca, with a large inset of Mahon and two detailed views.

The map is based upon recently completed surveys conducted by Captain Clement Lempriere (1683-1746) during his expedition. Lempriere issued a version of this map under the imprint of S. Austen in 1746, which lacks the 1753 annotation below the title cartouche and also does not include the 'BATAILLE D'ALMANZA. The view of Mahon was first issued by Lempriere as a separate view in June, 1746, although this issuance is of the utmost rarity.

Lempriere divides Minorca into Terminos and provides a highly detailed treatment of its topography and roads.

Condition Description
Minor tear to the right of the centerfold at the bottom of the map, repaired on verso.
