A very scarce and interesting map of the Holy Land engraved by Henri le Roy and published by Pierre Mariette. The map is divided into the twelve tribes and filled with detail. Above the map are three smaller maps: a general map of the region from southern Turkey to the Nile delta, a plan of ancient Jerusalem, and a map of the Exodus.
A nice impression with contemporary outline color on a bright sheet with a large coat of arms watermark, a couple of extraneous vertical creases, and faint dampstains along the top edge of the sheet.
