"Terre Sainte" Copperplate engraving map of Holy Land showing 12 tribes of Israel. Non-contemporary hand colored. Cartouche b/w of Palestine. Plate: 19 1/2" x 20 1/2". Framed. Great condition.

Published by Homann Heirs Publishers, this map depicts the region of Palestine divided into the 12 tribes of Israel. In the right hand corners there are two title cartouches. The lower is exceptionally decorative and depicts two spies of Moses bearing the fruit from the Promised Land to the Hebrew camp, as well as the front and back of an ancient shekel coin. The upper left quadrant offers an overview of the region as a whole. The upper right features a dedication from the mapmaker to Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand, the future Prince of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel and Duke of Braunschweig-Lüenberg. This map was originally drawn by Johann Christoph Harenberg.
