Copper engraving, hand colored in outline. Shown is the northern part of the kingdom of Portugal towards Gallizia. The antique map includes the southern part of Gallizia with the city of Orense in its centre. Northern Portugal is well shown on the map. including the cities Braga, Villa real, Braganca, Lamego and Coimbra. This old map is based on the cartographic source by Sr. Bellin (Nicolaus Bellin) and was published here with M. Remondini in Venice in 1779. The political borders of the individual regions and principalities are hand colored in outline. In the upper right corner with a decorative floral ornated title cartouche. At the bottom left a mileage scale. The map is equipped with many small place names, rivers, mountains, lakes and islands along the coastline, showing even depths in the sea. The map first appeared in Santini's Atlas Universel in 1776-79 in Paris. In 1784 Santini sold the plates of the maps to M. Remondini, who published then these maps in Venice with his additional imprint in the title cartouches.
