A New Historical Map of Palestine, With Part of Egypt & Arabia. Ancient & Modern Geography of those Countries with the Routes of Several Celebrated Travellers.

Rare 1833 edition of a historical map of Palestine, with a part of Egypt and Arabia. This map is of particular interest for showing the principal roads and travel routes through the desert, with the old Roman road and the route of the Hajj, as well as the route taken by Eyles Irwin in 1777. Occasional browning; slipcase rubbed and bumped, but well preserved on the whole.
