Interesting early-19th-century English map of Jerusalem and the surrounding countryside, published by Robert Wilkinson.

The map includes plans of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Gideon, and the other nearby towns. In the lower right is a key with over twenty place names. The level of detail, and in particular the focus on roads, makes this a particularly nice example of a popular mapping of the Holy City. Biblical places are named.

"Moriah" is the name given to a mountainous region in the Book of Genesis. According to Jewish sources, Mount Moriah is in the vicinity of modern-day Jerusalem.

This map was later reproduced by Finley for his New General Atlas.
