Map of Palistine from "La Mer des Hystoires" published in by Dupré, Paris, 1536 "La Mer des Hystoires" is a translation into French of the famous "Rudimentum Novitiorum", a world history first issued at Lübeck in 1475.
This 1475 map of the Holy Land is regarded as the first modern printed map because it is not derived from a classical source (Ptolemy), nor is it in the circular schematic format characteristic of medieval maps.
However, it retains two attributes of earlier maps: it is "oriented" with east at the top, and Jerusalem is at the center.
The geographic information is taken largely from a now lost manuscript map made two centuries earlier by a Dominican pilgrim, Burchard of Mt. Sion. In this bird's-eye view, topographic features are portrayed with reasonable accuracy, and cities and regions are depicted as stylized hills.

"La Mer des Hystoires" is an original adaptation in French language of a Latin text describing the universal history of France from its origins until the death of King Louis XI. It is completed with a geographical dictionary, a description of the Holy Land, Aesop’s Fables and a genealogy of kings of France until the death of King Louis XI and followed by a second part entitled Le Martirologe des sainctz."
