A rather handsome example of a particular type of 18th Century map of the Holy Land that seems to come up quite often.
Not dazzling by any stretch... but I like this one a bit more than some of its contemporaries.
As always; biblical scholars are more than welcome to shed light on what it is that this map does well or poorly.
