Title: 'Carte des regions et des lieux dont il est parle dans le nouveau Testament'.
Description: A map of the near East at the time of Christ. In the bottom left corner is an insert showing a plan of Jerusalem whilst an insert in the bottom right corner shows the Judea of King Herod's time, in detail.
This map was included in an uncommon miniature atlas measuring 10.5 cm by 6,5 cm (approx). In order to fit within the covers it was folded three times. Through successive unfolding and refolding the paper suffered slight damage at one or two of the intersections. A professional restorer (national library) has repaired the damage without loss. At the same time the image was de-acified, cleaned (but not bleached white) and pressed.
