Nodig Berigt tot Verklaring der Eerste Landkaarte.
Folio. Unpaginated. Marbled paper covered boards. Fascinating Biblical atlas displaying a series of 12 engraved maps of the Holy Land during different historic epics. These maps were drawn by Willem Albert Bachiene, a Dutch preacher, astronomer, and geographer. Each double-page map is inserted between pages of explanatory text and has a decorative vignette of an appropriate event and a baroque title cartouche. Maps numeroted from I to XII (Map III was misnumbered, and bears No.II). Some edge wear on binding with heavy rubbing along edges, on boards and spine, with parts of paper missing. Sporadic foxing/browning throughout. Very minor damp staining on margin of maps VII and IX. Text in Dutch. Binding in overall poor to fair, interior in very good condition (stunning maps).
