Attractive early map of the Holy Land and adjoining regions, with many regions named. Many early towns and biblical place names are depicted including the cities of Babel and Ptolemais, as well as more local attractions such as Sarah's Cave or the land of the Moabites.
This map is based on the earlier Visscher map of the region, from 1671, which, along with five other maps were translated into English by Joseph Moxon. In 1691, the map appeared in Moxon's Sacred Geographie or Scriptural Mapps. This example first appeared in The Holy Bible, from 1715
