Very graphic map from a Dutch Bible depicting the land of Canaan. Fifteen vignettes containing Biblical scenes illustrating the life of Christ surround the map. The map is nicely detailed and is decorated with a strapwork scale cartouche, sailing ship and a compass rose.
Expert repairs on centerfold and a couple of tears into map with margin extended at left, all very professionally accomplished.
