This interesting view was engraved by Jean-Baptiste Scotin. It shows the region around Mount Tabor with a key at bottom describing the important sites. On top of Mount Tabor is an engraved scene depicting the site of the Transfiguration of Christ and in the valley is the site for the battle between Barak and the army of Jabin, commanded by Sisera.
There is a hint of toning along centerfold, a minor extraneous crease in the top right corner, and hinge tape on the verso of the top margin.
