Regnum Iudeorum in Filios Herodis Magni per Tatrarchias Divisum


The later Covens & Mortier edition of de la Rue's scarce and fascinating map of the Holy Land, depicting the "Kingdom of the Jews divided by the sons of Herod the Great into tetrarchies at the time of Christ." Highly detailed with many place names, the map is said in the cartouche to be based on the Books of Maccabees, the works of Josephus, and others. Originally issued in de la Rue's La Terre Sainte en Six Cartes Geographiques, published in Paris by Mariette in 1651.
