Very interesting woodblock map of the Holy Land and Cyprus, covering from southern Turkey to the Nile Delta. The map is very graphic, almost in a pictorial style with a sea monster and a boat shown in the Mediterranean. Two inset panels of Latin text, one set within a cartouche. An illustration of Moses and the Ten Commandments on verso.

Slight foxing and tiny worm hole in margin.
