This attractive map from a large Dutch Bible shows the land of Israel divided into the 12 Tribes with all the places, rivers, mountains, and seas mentioned in the Holy Scriptures. It covers all of Palestine on both sides of the Jordan River and the Mediterranean coastline from Tzor (Sur) to the "River of Egypt." At bottom is a lovely pastoral scene with the Elders of Israel encircling a map and dividing the land among the Tribes. Engraved by Jan van Jagen.
