Lower Egypt with the Peninsula of Mt. Sinai and the Journeys of the Israelites. Description: This is a fine example of Adam and Charles Black's 1851 Biblical reference map of Greece, Italy, Asia Minor and Lower egypt in antiquity. The map is divided into two parts: The upper map covers the countries traveled by St. Paul, which include Italy, Greece and the Balkans and Asia Minor south as far as Arabia and egypt. The lower map covers Arabia and egypt and follows the journeys of the Israelites, including egypt, centered on the Nile River, and extending south as far as Hermopolis. Both maps feature ancient and contemporary place names, ie. Candia and Crete, for each destination - an invaluable resource or scholars of antiquity. The journeys of St. Paul are depicted on the upper map by variously dotted lines to differentiate from the first to the fifth journey. The lower map also depicts the Journeys of the Israelites from their first arrival at Kadesh and their second and third arrival and departure thereof. Throughout, the map identifies various cities, towns, rivers, mountain passes and an assortment of additional topographical details with relief shown by hachures. The upper map is hand colored in pink, green, blue and yellow pastels to define provincial boundaries. The lower map is outlined in red and green color depicting boundaries. This map was engraved by Sidney Hall for issue as plate no. LX in the 1851 edition of Black's General Atlas of the World . Size: Printed area measures 16.5 inches high by 11 inches wide.

DHL or FedEx will contact the buyer by telephone to arrange tax payment if it is levied. Duty varies by country and we cannot predict the amount you will be charged. Some countries are duty free, others are not. Typically, a customs duty and/or VAT tax will be assessed on all parcels to continental Europe. Sometimes duty or tax is due in China, but is seems very random. Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, and Taiwan have never assessed duty on a map we shipped. Maps shipped to the UK should be duty free as educational materials, but from time to time duty of 5% is assessed incorrectly by the UK customs agents.
