This map shows Palestine on both sides of the Jordan, with divisions among the Tribes, burial sites, notations on battles, and other locations of Biblical significance. The cities of Adama, Seboim, Sodom, and Gomorra are depicted burning within the Dead Sea. The area above Palestine is noted as The desert Arabia and Arabia the stonie. North is oriented to the left by an attractive compass rose.
