Lovely Dutch Bible map of the Holy Land divided into the twelve Tribes of Israel, and depicting the Exodus from Egypt and the wanderings of the Children of Israel. The lower part of the map is elaborately engraved with a scene of the encampment of the Children of Israel and religious sacraments. The map is further decorated with a convoy of ships bringing cedar for the building of Solomon's Temple, Jonas & the whale, all in rare original color. One stain in Egypt and light damp line in lower left, overall very good.
