Rare map of Spain and Portugal, published by Perre Husson in the Hague (Den Haag), identifying a number of the significant battles fought duing the war of Spanish Succession.

The map includes a number of battles, including a graphic depiction of the naval Battle of Velez-Malaga (August 24, 1704), the largest naval battle fought during the War of the Spanish Succession, along with a representation of a larger naval battle off the Catalan Coast, representative of the Siege of Barcelona by the British under the Earl of Peterborough. Other battles noted include the Bay of Vigo (October 23, 1702) and the Siege of Gibraltar (July 24, 1704).

The detail in the map is excellent, including a depiction of the roads throughout the Iberian Peninsula.

The map includes 16 coats of arms, mounted on an elegantly engraved cartouche. A fine example of this rare and highly detailed map.
