    This is a superb double-page map of the Holy Land. West is oriented to the top of the map. The map is divided into the twelve tribes of Israel. Several roads are depicted and the route of the Children of Israel through the desert. At the bottom center is an engraving of the Tabernacle surrounded by the twelve tribes and flanked by Moses and Aaron. The Mediterranean is filled with various types of ships and boats, including a depiction of Jonah and the whale. The map is spanned by a large title cartouche draped in a garland held aloft by six cherubs. The map is based on de Wit's version and is from Elwe's monumental 'Atlas'.
