Description

Extremely rare separately published map of the Holy Land, Cyprus, Asia Minor and the Eastern Mediterranean and contiguous regions, published in Paris by Jacob (Jacques) Honervogt.

The map illustrates the travels of the Apostle Paul, based upon the Gospel of Luke, from the New Testament.

Jacob (or Jacques) Honervogt (c.1583-c.1694), a native of Cologne, mainly published engravings but is known to have published at least 16 maps, primarily based upon the work of other mapmakers.

The maps are exceptionally rare -- none are mentioned by Pastoureau.

Jacob Honervogt Biography

Honervogt was a German born engraver, who moved to Paris in about 1608.

Honervogt had established a map shop in Paris by 1624.  Sometime after 1654, he took on Gerard Jollain as a partner.  Jollain continued the business after Honervogt's death.
