Voyage des Infans d'Israel d'Egypt par la Mer Rouge jusques au Pays de Canaan


The later Covens & Mortier edition of de la Rue's scarce and fascinating map tracing the journey of the Children of Israel from Egypt across the Red Sea (where the Egyptian troops are shown drowning) to the land of Canaan. Vignettes in the map's interior depict episodes of the Exodus, with a smoking Mount Sinai near the center. The beautiful cartouche shows Israelites gathering manna. Originally issued in de la Rue's La Terre Sainte en Six Cartes Geographiques, published in Paris by Mariette in 1651.
