    Handsome map of the territory assigned to half the tribe of Manasseh by Moses. This territory on the east side of the River Jordan is sometimes called "the land of Gilead," or "on the other side of Jordan." It embraced the whole of Bashan and was bounded on the south by Mahanaim, and extended north to Lebanon. Numerous biblical sites are depicted and identified by both name and number, and are more fully described in Adrichom's text.

The Theatrum Terrae Sanctae was an atlas and history of the Holy Land and was Adrichom's most important and famous work. Born in Delft, Christian Kruik van Adrichem, or Christianus Crucius Adrichomius, was a Catholic priest and theologian. Adrichom worked for thirty years on his three-part history of the Holy Land, and only succeeded in publishing the first part, Urbis Hierosolyma Depicta, during his lifetime. The remaining two parts were published posthumously by Georg Braun in 1590, with subsequent editions in 1593, 1600, 1613, 1628, and 1682. The Theatrum Terrae Sanctae contained 12 maps and plans: one of the Holy Land, nine of territories of the Tribes of Israel, one of the Exodus, and a town plan of Jerusalem.

Condition Description: A fine impression with attractive color on watermarked paper. Issued folding with minor printer's ink residue at top right.

Ref: Laor #14.
