Description

Fine original antique map of the Old World, showing lands inhabited by the descendants of the sons of Noah.

The map shows Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East in detail, with numerous details including mountain chains, rivers, ancient cities, and more. The map includes two insets in the upper corners: Terre de Canaan et Terre Promise and Carte du Paradis Terrestre. This latter map, the "map of terrestrial paradise," shows the location of the Garden of Eden as somewhere between the Black and Caspian seas.

This map was engraved in Paris in the 18th century by De La Haye.
