Superb Dutch Bible map covering the region between the Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf, featuring the Garden of Eden. Strapwork title cartouche flanked by scenes of Eve offering Adam an apple, and the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. A lovely, decorative map.
Overall light and even soil. Margins extended at sides to accommodate framing and a couple of professional repairs of tiny tears.
