Uncommon panelled map of the Holy Land

JANSSON, Jan.

Palestina sive Terræ Sanctæ Descriptio.
Amsterdam: Jan Jansson van Waesberge, c.1677, blank verso. Coloured. 440 x 570mm.

Trimmed to printed borders at sides, new margins added, centre fold reinforced on verso.

A beautiful map of the Holy Land based on Adrichom, orientated with north to the left, with 18 inset scenes from Genesis, Exodus & Numbers, and a nineteenth depicting Jesus approaching Jerusalem on the donkey. This map did not appear in many atlases, supplanted by Henricus Hondius's less decorative but more contemporary map. As this example has no text it is likely to have been published in Georg Horn's atlas of the ancient world, issued by Jansson's son-in-law.

LAOR: 372; NEBENZAHL: p119, plate 43, 'impressive'.
