Lot 0137 Details

Description
  • Title/Content of Map: Judée ou Terre Sainte
  • Cartographer: Robert de Vaugondy/Lamarche
  • Place & Date: Paris / 1795
  • Size: 8 1/2" x 9 5/8"
  • Condition: outline color; overall age toning, spotting and some staining.

    Vaugondy's fascinating 1760s Holy Land map, "corrected" by Larmarche in the Year III of the French Republic (1795). The map shows the Holy Land divided into tribal territories, with keys to ancient Hebrew and Roman provincial borders and an icon key identifying royal, priestly and sanctuary cities.

    Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688–1766) was one of the leading cartographers in France during the 18th century, along with his son Didier Robert de Vaugondy. Together, they published one of the most important atlases of the 18th century, "The Atlas Universel". In this atlas, old sources were verified and corrected by integrating innovations in astronomical observations, as well as modern longitues and latitudes.
