This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of the Holy Land that you might want to check out.

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.
