A map of Palestine, or the Holy Land

The Holy Land 1557

A very skilful reduction by Fransiscus della Gatta of a much larger map by Wissenberg.



Johannes Fransiscus Della Gatta based this 1557 map of the Holy Land on Wolfgang Wissenberg’s much larger map of 1537

This was dedicated to Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, the only known copy of which is in the Bibliotheque National in Paris. Della Gatta exercised considerable skill in reducing the original considerably whilst including all the information and making his version legible.
