This map depicts the Exodus from Egypt and the wanderings of the Children of Israel. The lower part of the map is elaborately engraved with a scene of the encampment and Moses receiving the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai. Adam, Eve, Cane and Abel flank the title cartouche. The map is further decorated with a convoy of ships bringing cedar for the building of Solomon's Temple, and Jonah and the whale. This is the first state without the engraver's imprint, published by Hendrik Keur and Marcus Doornick.

Dark impression on sturdy paper with good original margins. There are a few very insignificant faint spots, still very good.
