This superior reproduction of "Perigrinatie ofte Veertich-Iarige Reyse der Kinderen Israels", originally published by Jacob Keur and Marcus Doornick in Biblia, a Dutch Bible of 1702, depicts the Holy Land, Israel,and Palestine.
Based on the Nicholas Visscher map of 1650, it shows the twelve tribes of Israel as they fled out of Egypt, crossed the Red Sea, and spent the next forty years wandering in the desert before they finally reached the Promised Land.
The decorative engraving is the work of Daniel Stoopendaal, an eminent Dutch engraver of the time. His elaborate illustrations depict scenes from Exodus, including Moses at Mount Sinai receiving the tablets containing the Ten Commandments, the encampments of the Israelites, water gushing from a stone, and the plague-stricken Israelites looking towards a serpent for healing.
Illustrations retained from the previous Visscher edition show a fleet of ships carying cedar for the construction of Solomon's temple and Jonah and the whale.
