Lot 0003 Details
Palaestinae Accurata Descriptio Geographica, Ita Adornata, ut Diversarum Aetatum Regna…. This Seutter map of the Holy Land is based on Homann's map of Palestine, and was issued in Homann’s Atlas Compendiarius Seu Scholasticus Minor. It shows the region divided among the twelve tribes of Israel – color coded. Lots of topographical and settlement detail are shown. The Kishon River is shown as connecting the Mediterranean Sea with the Sea of Galilea. In an inset at bottom right is a map showing the Exodus and Wandering surrounded by the Roman captors of Judea. The elaborate title cartouche features a female being offered a crown, presumably the Empress Maria Theresa. 19.2 x 22.4 in.
