Terre de Chanaan

Charles Francois DELAMARCHE (1740 – 1817)

Didier Robert de VAUGONDY (1723ca – 1786)

“Terre de Chanaan ou
Terre Promise a Abraham et a sa Posterité”
Original etched map of the Holy Land, approximately today's Israel, 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 is divided in three insets, the main one shows the road of the Exodus and a nice allegorical cartouche depicting the drunkness of Noah, bottom right is shown the Ark of the Covenant; top left the second inset shows the details of Abraham's journey and another very decorative cartouche with the Lord's covenant with Abraham and ythe Sacrifice of Isaac; bottom left, the third inset contain the representation of the Israelites tribes camp around the Ark of Covenant.
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 and another printing crease very close at left, browning and small foxing spots at the borders, somewhere a little bit stronger, otherwise in good condition with a recent bright accurate watercolouring.
