Description

Rare regional map of Catalunya, showing the region from the Bay of Roses to Montjoi, centered on the fortifications of Capo de Quiers.

The map is apparently unrecorded. In correspondence with the Institut Cartografic de Catalunya, at least one of the map showing a larger region was identified, a map by Sieur de Beaulieu entitled Plan de la ville de Cap de Quiers, published in Paris in 1659. A link to the map in the Institut's collection is below: http://cartotecadigital.icc.cat/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/catalunya&CISOPTR=1160&CISOBOX=1&REC=13

The maps are almost certainly from the same manuscript source, which is apparently a map by Padre Conty Maggio from 1655, although the original map has not yet been identified.
