About this Item

The earliest known Hebrew map of the Land of Israel is that drawn by Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Yitzhaki, 11th century). In its wake, many maps were drawn and published by Jews. These maps depicted the Land of Israel and its borders, the route of the Israelites in the desert, the tribal allotments, and other biblical topics.This volume, which includes many reproductions â" mostly in color â" presents the Hebrew maps in two categories. The first, following in the footsteps of Rashi, were schematic maps, rectangular or square, without any artistic decoration. The second category includes maps influenced by or copied from Christian cartographers, though their Jewish artists attempted to bring them into line with Jewish tradition. A development of the 19th century was the appearance of cartographic tableaux that presented a traditional depiction of the Land of Israel together with drawings representing the holy places, and also modern maps, whose production continued into the 20th century.
