This fine map of Europe (except Scandinavia) and the Mediterranean illustrates the travels of St. Paul from Jerusalem to Rome. The title is in a panel across the top. Crisply engraved with good detail throughout and simply decorated with three compass roses. The map was engraved by Albert Schut and published in a Dutch Bible, first by Danckerts, second by R & J Wetstein and William Smith in Amsterdam and Samuel Luchtmans in Leiden, and last by I.B. Elwe. This map still bears the Wetsein, Smith, Luchtman imprint (at left) but was published by Elwe. Dutch text on verso.
