John Speed was the best known English mapmaker of his time. He started mapmaking late in life, producing his first maps when he was almost 60 years old. This particular map depicts the Iberian Peninsula providing good detail and being one of the most visually appealing 17th century maps of Spain and Portugal. The map is headed by depictions of nine of the most important Iberian cities and sided by the provincial attires of man and women of León, Castela, Biscaia, Portugal and Granada.
