B/ PM: 455 x 560 

State 4: the plate has been cut down inside the existing engraved border, removing the general title and imprint of Thomas and John Bowles, and has the  imprint of Robert Wilkinson added. On the right hand side, the cutting process has removed several words from the key to the prospect of the town, which have not been replaced. Otherwise, the sheet seems completely unchanged, with the exception of the 'South Prospect.' In the South Prospect, the key has been replaced with text 'In Feb 1726/7 y.e Spaniards / made another attempt / upon this Fortress; but af- / ter 4 Months, firing at a / distance a Cessation of / Arms released them / from the danger of carrying their / approaches to or near the / Town.' [5b] As a result, the following additions appear in the Prospect: 'Algezira or / Old Gibraltar', 'Back of the / New Mole', 'Spanish Coast' 'The South end of the Rock', removing the relevant numbers; the Moorish Wall is not named. The Mahon inset has been cut down with the loss of '... T[ower]' from 'A Watch Tower', and the lower border moved up to just below'S. Phillips Castle'. There does not appear to be any additions within the map.
