This image depicts a page from John Pine’s Tapestry of the House of Lords

Featuring a series of Pine's engravings of the Spanish Armada tapestries, which Hendrick Vroom designed (and, until 1834, graced Britain's House of Lords), Pine's book also provides detailed images of the formations of the Spanish and English fleets. 

This engraving depicts the Spanish "crescent formation."  It also shows the British coast with "Part of Cornwall" on the left and "Part of Devon" on the right.
