Unusual American map of Jerusalem, focused on the hills and surrounding topography. The map is interesting for several reasons, including the diversity of place names shown and the topographical detail.
This map is perhaps most unusual for its combination of both biblical and modern toponyms. Traditional place names are shown, but also other current Arabic names. Jerusalem is shown divided into its four quarters.
This map was lithographed by the firm Shober & Corqueville in Chicago and published by H. H. Hardesty in Toledo, Ohio.
Original hand-color. Minor toning and soiling.
