Description

Rare example of David Funcke's richly detailed map of the Holy Land, published in Nuremberg.

The map is oriented with west at the top, in the style of Van Adrichom. Shows the encampment of the Israelites, flanked by Moses & Jesus.

One of the most interesting features of this map is that it was engraved by a young Johann Baptist Homann, prior to Homann's establishing the firm which would bear his name for the next 100 years.

Funcke was active from 1680-1705, but his maps rarely appear on the market.
