On two sheets joined, this decorative and detailed map of the Holy Land extending from the Nile delta, at the right, to just north of Sidon, at left and includes a miscellany of Hebrew imagery illustrating objects , buildings and figures. The territories of the ancient Tribes are shown, along with an inset plan of ancient Jerusalem. There are 16 vignettes including biblical artefacts, a robed Priest, views and a plan of the Temple, and so on. Apparently the map first appeared in Antwerp in 1632 in Tirinus's "Commentarius ..." and its geography was originally based on the work of Christian van Adrichom. Here is a re-engraving by Josef Erasmus Belling of Augsburg.
