Description

Interesting untitled map of the Holy Land from an 18th-century German school atlas.

The map is mostly in German though there is Hebrew used to describe the Mediterranean: "ים הגדול Das Grosse oder Mittellaen-Dische Meer"

The map shows topography, drainage, and the territorial boundaries of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, as well as places of historical interest.
