Palestine Sev Terra Sancta Antique Map Cellarius 1771

Title: Palestina Sev Terra Sancta

Fine antique map copperplate engraved with hand coloring of the Holy Land.

Mapmaker: Christophorous Cellarius (1638-1707)
A professor of Geography who held postions in Weimar and Halle Germany.
He is perhaps best known for the “Geographia Antiqua”, which was first published in 1686 with editions being re-printed to 1812.
The Harmonia Macrocosmica, was published in 1660 (a reprint was issued in 1661) by the Amsterdam publisher Johannes Janssonius as a cosmographical supplement to his Atlas Novus. Andreas Cellarius had already started working on this atlas before 1647 and intended it to be a historical introduction for a two-volume treatise on cosmography but the second part was never published.
