    Oriented with north to the left, this map shows the portion of the Holy Land that was divided into the tribe of Reuben. The cities of Adama, Seboim, Sodom, and Gomorra are depicted within the Dead Sea, the first two of which are shown burning. The map depicts numerous biblical sites identified by both name and number, which 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: Excellent impression and color on watermarked paper with a few faint spots of foxing to the left of the title cartouche.

Ref: Laor #17.
