A Dramatic Holy Land Map

Holy Land. SANSON, N./ SCHENK, P. [Amsterdam, c. 1700]
Iudaea, seu Terra Sancta quae Hebraeorum sive Israelitarum... . 19 ¼ x 22 ¾ inches
Fine hand color; excellent condition.


A distinctively decorated map of the Holy Land in a beautiful example. The map's exclusively Old Testament imagery in the cartouche includes the figures of Moses and Solomon. Abraham is also shown in the process of sacrificing Isaac, interrupted by an angel helpfully pointing out a ram hiding behind the patriarch.

Laor, E. Maps of the Holy Land #683.
