Title : Terrae Sanctae quae Promissionis terra, est Syriae pars,...
Map maker : DE JODE,G..
Date : Antwerp 1578.
Size : 12.0 x 20.0 inches. / 30.5 x 50.8 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Map of Holy land from the extremely rare first edition.. This map shows the Mediterranean at the top while the entire lower right offers a detailed view of Jerusalem.
Engraved by Joannes and Lucas van Deutecum, who's signature is in the lower left corner. from the extremely rare first edition.Gerard De Jode was the great rival of Ortelius, both made a living out of selling maps, and it seems not always on good terms. It is probable that Ortelius was responsible for a delay in the publication of Gerard de Jode's Speculum. Gerard De Jode, 18 years older than Ortelius, owned many more copper-plates for maps than Ortelius had. Ortelius did not employ highly paid engravers as De Jode had done.
De Jode received the ecclesiastical imprimatur in 1573, but it was not until 1579 that the first copies of the Speculum were sold at Plantin's shop, and only very few copies were sold. Now-a-days only a few atlases from the first and only edition are known to exist. Also single leaves are an utmost rarity.
After the death of Gerard in 1591, the business was carried on by his widow and his son Cornelis, who re-issued the Speculum in 1593, most plates were newly engraved, and therefore making those of the first edition extremely rare.°
Koeman III, 8150:32A./ Laor 375
Condition : Mint condition. Very good and dark impression.
