Carte de la Terre des Hebreux ou Israelites

Charles Francois DELAMARCHE (1740 – 1817)

Didier Robert de VAUGONDY (1723ca – 1786)

“Carte de la Terre des Hebreux ou Israelites
partagée selon l'ordre
Original etched map of the Holy Land showing the division of the twelve tribes on both sides of the river Jordan, from an example of the “Atlas d'étude pour l'instruction de la Jeunesse, composé de trente-six cartes, par Robert de Vaugondy Géographe. Corrigé et augmenté par Delamarche son Successeur” published in Paris by Delamarche and Dien after 1817 (the name of Delamarche and his address in Paris is shown in the decorative cartouche lower left).
The map was engraved by G. Delahaye, a french engraver specialised in topographical subjects, working in Paris during the second half of the XVIIIth century.
The beautiful allegorical cartouche shows at the top, in the center of the Sun, the word “God” written in Hebrew, on the left side there is Moses with the Tablets of the Law and opposite Abraham.
Very nice example printed on laid paper with watermark “Chapelet” similar to Heawood 244, found in a Vaugondy's Atlas Universel dated 1793, relating to French paper production of the late XVIIIth century and beginning of the XIXth, with wide margins around the platemark, the usual central vertical fold due to the binding, browning and small foxing spots at the borders otherwise in very good condition with a recent bright accurate watercolouring.
