Uncommon view of the Twelve Tribes of Israel encamped around the enclosure surrounding the Ark of the Covenant during the Exodus. The plan is oriented with west at top. The beautifully engraved foreground shows the Israelites collecting the miraculous manna that has fallen from Heaven.
Sharp impression and original color with a couple of marginal spots of foxing, not affecting the view.
