This splendid Dutch Bible map of the Holy Land illustrates the Exodus from Egypt and the wanderings of the Children of Israel in the desert. Canaan is shown divided into the Twelve Tribes. The lower part of the map is elaborately engraved with a scene of the encampment and Moses receiving the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai. At top is a scene of God's word enlightening the world with Moses, Solomon, the apostles and evangelists. The map was based on Visscher's map of 1650.
