This edition was published by J. Bowles, T. Bowles, P. Overton, J. King, in London c.1730. Two sheets conjoined, total 595 x 975mm.

Moll's large format map of Europe, dedicated to Queen Caroline, queen consort of King George II, whose portrait appears in the title dedication cartouche along with allegorical figures representing the four continents.
Despite the date of 1708 in the imprint, Caroline became queen in 1727. In the original state the portrait and dedication was to Queen Anne and published by Herman Moll in his New and Compleat Atlas.

Moll was a great admirer of Peter the Great and in the bottom right is a inset map showing the canal built by Peter the Great of Russia enabling boats to cross between the Volga and the Don, thus connecting the Caspian and Black Seas.

Moll's map of Europe is a good example of his cartographic style: large scale, clear, bold.
