Finely engraved map of the region covering the area from eastern Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf.
The map is based on the Ortelius/Vrients map of this title designed by Franciscus Haraeus, which appeared in late editions of the Parergon.
The map covers the area from Turkey and the Caucasus to the region north of the Black Sea. Details include the pyramids in Egypt, the route of Abraham from Ur to Sichem, and the wandering of the Children of Israel.
A large inset map of the Holy Land is shown at the right.
