Coloured map of Palestine, oriented to the west, showing the Holy Land on both sides of the Jordan from Tripoli to the Nile Delta. Moses receiving the Ten Commandments and Aaron are illustrated on either side of the title cartouche and Pharoah’s forces are shown drowning in the Red Sea. Originally engraved by J. Hondius, Jr., the map was first published by Blaeu in 1630 and appeared in all editions of his Novus Atlas. A description of the region appears verso in Latin. The map has some water-staining and a few minor marginal defects; otherwise a strong dark impression on heavy paper in very good condition. 38 cm x 50 cm
