Het Beloofde Landt Canaan.


A splendid map of "the beloved land of Canaan," oriented with west at the top of the page and featuring a multitude of place names as well as St. Paul's sea route from Jerusalem to Rome. The Holy Land is divided into both Roman political divisions and Hebrew tribal areas. Beneath the map itself is an extraordinary cartouche with, at the center of the upper tier, the resurrection of Christ flanked by the three Wise Men and Mary Magdalene recognizing the risen Christ; on the lower tier, Evangelists sit on either side of two key New Testament scenes: the Nativity and the Crucifixion. Cartouches at the top of the map enclose the mileage scale and an icon key to cities and towns.
