“Palestine” Philadelphia: O.W. Gray & Co. 1875. Lithograph. 14 7/8 x 12. Original color. Very good condition.
A map of the Holy Land in Biblical times. Published by the Philadelphia firm of O.W. Gray which began its publishing around mid-century and published regional and U.S. atlases up to the 1880s, first as O.W. Gray and then O.W. Gray & Son. This map is typical of their work, presenting the latest information available with clear and precise detail. However, unlike most of their maps, this map shows political boundaries from millenia in the past, not from the present day. An interesting map of the Holy Land.
