Fine, decorative map of the kingdoms of Judea and Israel with tribal divisions and a wealth of place names and topographical detail, including the locations of royal and priestly cities, and sanctuaries. Decorated with two fine cartouches. The title cartouche includes four figures; at top Moses and Aaron flank the royal coat of arms, and at bottom a Roman soldier and a pagan figure appear on either side of the Arc of the Covenant. The lower mileage-scale cartouche features the Almighty creating the animals.
