Original copper engraving, published 1612 in the famous historical atlas "Parergon" (Latin text-edition) by Abraham Ortelius. Finely later hand colored in wash and outline. The map shows the travels and life of Abraham. More else, this highly decorative map, is surrounded by 22 fine engraved medallions, which are showing episodes of the life of the Patriach Abraham. The map was published 1592 for the first time in Abraham Ortelius edition of the ,Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'. Ortelius, who created this map used as cartographical source for this map information from Ptolemy and from the bible, particulary for the illustrations of Abraham's life depicted in 22 medallions.
