Notes: /Ruderman source73057] Froom Ogilby's book 'Africa...'; Interesting engraved bird's-eye view of the English colony of Tangier by R. White for John Ogilby. This view is based on a larger one by Hollar after Jonas Moore. Tangier was turned into a massive, and very expensive, fortress at the entrance to the Mediterranean, more than fifty years before the English took control of Gibraltar in 1713, before the abandonment and leveling of English Tangier in 1684.
