Rare English map of the Holy Land, published by Richard Blome in 1691. This is a particularly rare edition of Blome's mapping, issued with Fontaine History Of The Old And New Testament.

The map show the wandering of the "Children of Israel," following their exodus from Egypt. It presents a detailed treatment of modern-day Israel and its environs, based on biblical sources. The map includes early towns, roads, mountains, and references to biblical places and the tribes of Israel and other early inhabitants of the region. 

The map is orientated with west at the top. The regions associated with the tribes of Israel are shown. Decorative elements appear in the Mediterranean. The parting of the Red Sea is shown.

Blome's map is based upon an earlier Dutch map by Claes Jansz Visscher and the 1671 Moxon map. We find no records of this edition of the map having traded.
