Charming small map of the Holy Land extending to Egypt and showing the route of the Children of Israel in their exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land. The map is finely engraved and filled with a surprising amount of detail. The large title cartouche shows Moses with the Commandments, Aaron, an angel and a cherub in a cloud background.
