This superior reproduction of "Iudaea seu Palaestina ob sacratissima Redemtoris vestigia hodie dicta Terra Sancta prout olim In Duodecim Tribus Divisa separatis ab invicem Regnis Iuda et Israel" was originally published in Nuremberg in 1730 by Johann Baptist Homann, engraver and geographer to the Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire and member of the Prussian Royal Academy of Science.
A classic example from the school of German cartographers, it shows the Holy Land divided into 12 tribes, with the cartography organized according to biblical information.
The large inset map in the lower right depicts the wanderings of Moses in the desert. The large cartouche on the left shows Moses at Mt. Sinai receiving the tablets containing the Ten Commandments. Also illustrated are the burning bush, the Israelites' encampment and scenes from Heaven, complete with winged angels.
