Fine old color example of the rare first edition of De Jode's map of the Holy Land.

The map is based upon the map of Tilemannus Stella and is oriented with west at the top. The shoreline is irregular and runs from Tirus to Beersheba. The Dead Sea is a crescent shape. There is a view of modern Jerusalem at the bottom, and two illustrations, the Chapel of the Nativity in Bethlehem and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

The views are based upon work by Fernando Bertelli.

Gerard De Jode (1509-1591) was a pre-eminent mapmaker in the late seventeenth century, a time when the Dutch dominated the map trade. He was known for his many maps, some of which featured in Speculum Orbis Terrae (first edition Antwerp: 1578). Although never as successful as Ortelius’ Theatrum, the Speculum did get republished in a second edition in 1593, two years after De Jode’s death, by Arnold Coninx, and included this map. After his death, Gerard’s son, Cornelis (1568-1600), and his wife, Paschina, ran the shop. Unfortunately, Cornelis died young in 1600, aged only 32, and the stock and plates were sold to the publisher Joan Baptista Vrients.
