This is a scarce leaf from an English bible produced by Christopher Barker. It contains a lovely woodblock map of the Holy Land depicting the area of modern-day Israel and western Jordan. The map has no attribution, but is likely after Guillaume Postel as he is credited with the maps in Barker's biblical works. The page (6.8" x 10") has English text on both sides.

A nice impression on watermarked paper with light soiling and a few minor spots.
