A fine print reproduction of one of the most richly illustrated religious maps of the 17th century.

This stunning 1687 map of the Holy Land is based largely on the 1650 map by Nicolas Visscher, and was used as an illustration from a Dutch Bible and is oriented west, covering the Nile Delta, Cairo and Memphis and extends as far north as Sidon and Tyre of Lebanon, and further inland, Palmyra.

Many Biblical scenes are represented on the map, with that of Moses receiving the Ten Commandments on Mt. Sinai taking center stage. Others such as the wanderings and encampments of the tribes, and many of their tribulations and undertakings are also depicted in detail, such as a fleet of ships transporting cedar from Sidon to Jaffa for the construction of Solomon's Temple. Moses is shown producing water from a stone. Canaan is shown divided into the Twelve Tribes.

The lower part of the map is elaborately engraved with a scene of the encampment and Moses receiving the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai. Putti hold aloft the title cartouche and to the right is a scene representing God's Word, Moses, David and Solomon with the commandments, and the apostles.
