This attractive map from a large Dutch Bible shows the land of Israel with all the places, rivers, mountains, and seas mentioned in the Holy Scriptures. It covers all of Palestine on both sides of the Jordan River and the Mediterranean coastline from Tzor (Sur) to Rhinocolura (El Arish). At bottom is a lovely pastoral scene with Moses standing on Mount Nebo overlooking the land that God forbade him to enter. Engraved by Jan van Jagen.
