Iudaea seu Terra Sancta quae Hebraerorum [sic] sive Israelitarum Terra in suas duodecim tribus divisa
Augsburg 1700 - A Rare and Exceptional 17th Century Wall Map of The Holy Land(MAP) KOLLER (J.G.). Iudaea seu Terra Sancta, quae Hebraerorum [sic] sive Israelitarum Terra in suas duodecim tribus divisa. [Augsburg, c. 1700]. Large folding engraved wall map in 3 sheets joined, with added title in German. Spectacular image size measures 24 1/2 inches x 47 inches. Old hand coloring. Some expert repairs and strengthening of centerfolds. Exquisitely floated and framed with archival linen matting. Very Good condition. LARGE DECORATIVE MAP OF THE HOLY LAND RARELY SEEN ON THE MARKET. This map is oriented toward the East (at the top), with the Mediterranean Sea along the bottom. Two inset maps at the top corners show the travels of Abraham and the wanderings of the Israelites during the Exodus from Egypt. Important place names and decorative motifs throughout.The eight square feet measurement, combined with unusual beauty and the fact that this is likely a separate publication not found in any atlas or Bible, makes this map highly desirable and important. Published under the patronage of Fr. Caccia, commissioner-general for the Holy Land in the Holy Roman Empire (c. 1690-1700), this map is not found in any of the standard carto-bibliographies of Laor, Röhricht, Tobler, and British Library Maps. Rare and beautiful!
