The Sinai Peninsula By The Father of Modern Biblical Geography
Attractive map of the Sinai Peninsula, based on the work of the noted biblical scholar Edward Robinson, whose works would become the standard authority on biblical knowledge.
The map shows the routes in the region undertaken by Robinson during his Palestinian voyages, marked in red.
Robinson made two journeys to Palestine (1838 and 1852). His work has been described as a "cornerstone of nineteenth-century Palestine exploration." Earlier descriptions had relied on the accounts of travelers and legends, whereas Robinson and his guide and translator Eli Smith relied on only what they saw for themselves.
The maps from this work are rare on the market.
