This large, uncommon sheet contains two maps. On the left is a 'modern' map by Nicolas de Fer that shows the region under Turkish rule and divided into provinces. On the right is a map by Philippe de la Rue that depicts the Promised Land divided into the twelve tribes. The map provides a wealth of information, both in the maps and in the accompanying French text. This edition was published by Guillaume Danet.
