Caption

Palestine. North is towards upper right. Published in 1588, this German map shows the geography of Palestine, centred on the area that later become the state of Israel. The inscriptions are in German, and the place names are in Latin. These include ancient names like Petra, Coele Syria and Judea. The Dead Sea is at lower centre, and the Mediterranean coast is at left. Numerous towns and villages are shown on the map. The map is by the German cartographer Sebastian Munster (1489-1552), and was published in Basel in a posthumous edition of his Cosmographia, the earliest German atlas.
