This scarce map is a reduced version of Visscher's map of the Holy Land. North is oriented to the lower left with a lovely compass rose that is incorporated into the distance scale cartouche. The map is filled with graphic topography and beautifully embellished with a vignette of the crucifixion. Several ships and boats fill the sea; the origin and route of St. Paul toward Rome is traced. This is from the only Dutch Bible published by Samuel Schoonwald.
Some uneven toning in margins, else fine.
