The map is a three section foldout. Viii + 55 Pages. Singerman 913; Rosenbach 574. A pioneering work propagating the Zionist idea fifteen years prior to the birth of Theodore Herzl. Mordechai Manuel Noah proposes that if the Ottoman Sultan would grant permission for Jews to purchase land in Palestine, then ¿the whole territory surrounding Jerusalem including Hebron, Safat, Tyre¿Beyroot, Jaffa nd other ports of the Mediterranean will be occupied by enterprising Jews" (pages 37-38). He appealed to American Christian: "But, my friends, why not ask yourselves the great and cardinal question, whether it is not your duty to aid in restoring the Chosen People as Jews to their Promised Land?" (Page 28). "Where, I ask, can we commence this great work of regeneration with a better prospect of success than in a free country and a liberal government? Where can we plead the cause of independence for the children of Israel with greater confidence than in the cradle of American liberty?" Page 10). This discourse by Noah was selected by the later great historian Prof. Abraham J. Karp as one of the ten most important publications illustrative of the development of American Jewry.
