Description


This is a beautiful example of Johnson and Ward's 1865 map of Israel, Palestine, or the Holy Land. The map includes the modern day nations of Israel, Palestine and Lebanon with parts of adjacent Syria and Jordan. Both ancient and contemporary place names as well as the locations of Biblical events and ruined cities are noted. An inset map of Jerusalem appears in the lower right quadrant with all principal buildings identified. The upper left quadrant features an engraved view of Damascus, Syria. Various towns, cities, railways, roads, rivers and several other topographical features are noted with relief shown by hachure. This map features the fretwork style border common to Johnson's atlas work from 1864 to 1869. Published by A. J. Johnson and Ward as plate no. 94 in the 1865 edition of Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas.
