Description:

Copper-engraved map on three sheets joined together, old hand coloring.  59x120 cm. (23¼x47¼") plus title strip in German joined at top; archivally framed under plexiglass.

Large, decorative and spectacular map of the Holy Land, oriented toward the East (at the top) with the Mediterranean Sea along the bottom. Two inset maps at the top corners show the travels of Abraham and the wanderings of the Israelites during the Exodus from Egypt.  Important place names and decorative motifs throughout. The large size combined with unusual beauty, and the fact that this is likely a separate publication not found in any atlas or Bible makes this map highly desirable and important.  Published under the patronage of Fr. Caccia, commissioner-general for the Holy Land in the Holy Roman Empire (c. 1690-1700), this map is not found in any of the standard carto-bibliographies of Laor, Röhricht, Tobler, and British Library Maps. Beautifully framed. Because of the large size, extra shipping charges will apply.


Lot Amendments
Dimensions of the map in inches should read (23¼x47¼").

Condition:
