Palaestina in XII tribus divisa


Homann's fascinating map of the Holy Land "divided into 12 tribes and it adjacent lands" was "revised and augmented by J.C. Harenburg" according to the French title translation in the upper margin, and was included in Homann's Major Atlas Scholasticus. An inset scroll map shows the "petty kingdoms in which Palestine was once divided." The title cartouche illustrates the return of the spies from the Promised Land to the Israelite camp in the wilderness. Above it is a decorative dedicatory cartouche.
