SEUTTER, Matthäus. [An 18th century map of the Holy Land in fine colour]
Palaestinae accurata descriptio geographica... Augsburg, c.1741. Fine original colour. 510 x 580mm. A very fine example.
A decorative map of the Holy Land divided into the Twelve Tribes, engraved by Seutter's son-in-law, Tobias Conrad Lotter. The details of the map are identical to Seutter's map of Canaan (1725); however the two cartouches have been changed. In the title, instead of the scene of Jesus drawing out the demon from the possessed man, the subjects are Moses and the Ten Commandments, a female figure, probably the empress Maria Theresa, being presented with a crown, and grapes and wheat to highlight Palestine as the land of plenty. Around the inset map of the 40 Years in the Desert is a female figure paying homage to an allegorical figure of Roman Authority, a mantle taken by Maria Theresa as Holy Roman Empress. LAOR: 721.

AA, Pieter van der. [A monumental panorama of classical Jerusalem after Hollar]
Ierusalem. Leiden, 1729. Three sheets conjoined as issued, total 390 x 1980mm. A very fine impression
This is arguably the most spectacular of all early prospects of Jerusalem. The sheer scale of it shows a level of detail not seen on anything published before or long after.This panormaic view depicts the ancient city during the time of Christ, as seen from the east, based on biblical and other various historical sources. A table to the right lists 55 place names referenced to the view. According to Laor, this prospect is a much-enlarged version of a fomer work by the great Bohemian engraver, Wenceslaus Hollar, who spent most of his working career in London. The small plan to the upper left corner is, as noted in the text above, attributed to Villalpando. LAOR: 933.
