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. At top is a scene of God's word enlightening the world with Moses, Solomon, the apostles and evangelists. The map was based on Visscher's map of 1650.
