Abraham Ortelius
Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598) - 17th Century Engraving, Map of the Holy Land

Unknown

$4,243

About

An early 17th or late 16th century map showing the land of Canaan with an inset map depicting the wanderings of Abraham, the first patriarch of Judaism. Surrounded by 22 medallions showing scenes of Abraham's life. Taken from the Atlas Theatrum Orbis Terrarum or Parergon with Latin text on verso. Unlike many other versions of this print, the map is uncoloured, making the crisp detail of the engraving clearly visible. We estimate the map to be from 1621 or earlier, as it has the earlier version of vignettes. On laid.
