While this map covers nearly all of the Mediterranean, it focuses on the Holy Land and the Middle East and includes a considerable amount of information for such a small map. A small inset shows the wandering of the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land.
A crisp impression, issued folding, with a few spots of foxing in the blank margins.
