Item Description: 1570. Nuremberg, 1570. Image 95 x 390mm. Trimmed just within neatline, remargined, some minor loss skilfully repaired in facsimile. An extremely rare map of Palestine, with the Mediterranean at the top of the map, marking Sidon at the furthest right and Azza on the left. It is full of oddities, including invented bays on the coast, an over-sized Haifa Bay and a crescent-shaped Dead Sea. The compass also incorrectly engraved, with North 45ºW off true. Very little is known about Jenichen, an engraver and publisher in Nuremberg, whose output seems to be between 1560-77, including a map of Cyprus during the siege of 1571. He usually signed his plates with his initials only. Bookseller Inventory # 11715
