This delicately engraved map of the Holy Land is from an illustrated Dutch Bible. It is quite detailed with biblical references among the many place names. A vignette at bottom illustrates the Crucifixion and the map is adorned with two cartouches, a compass rose and several ships.
A dark impression on a sheet with folds as issued. The wide original margins have a couple of chips, well away from the map.
