This fine map of Europe (except Scandinavia) and the Mediterranean illustrates the travels of St. Paul from Jerusalem to Rome. The title is in a panel across the top. Crisply engraved with good detail throughout and simply decorated with three compass roses. The map was engraved by Albert Schut and published in a Dutch Bible, first by Danckerts, second by R & J Wetstein and William Smith in Amsterdam and Samuel Luchtmans in Leiden, and last by I.B. Elwe. This is the first state, published by Cornelis Danckerts. Dutch text on verso.

A dark impression on a bright sheet, issued folding and now flattened. There are professional repairs to several short fold separations, a couple of tiny edge tears that barely pass the neatline, and a chip confined to the top blank margin.
