Old color example of Visscher's map of the Holy Land, oriented to the West, and divided among the Tribes of Israel on both sides of the Jordan. The shore line runs from Sidon to Egypt. The Kishon River connects Haifa Bay to the Lake of Tiberias. Along the top, a garland is supported by 6 cherubs. At the bottom center, the encampment of the Tribes in the desert surrounding the Tabernacle, flanked by Moses and Aaron.
Visscher's map is the pro-type for many of the Holy Land maps issued in the late 17th Century by De Wit, Danckerts and others.
