While this map covers nearly all of the Mediterranean, it focuses on the Holy Land and the Middle East. A small inset shows the wandering of the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land. It is based on Sanson's pocket atlas map and includes a considerable amount of information for such a small map.
