This incredibly detailed map of Palestine includes Lebannon, Syria and part of (Hauran) now Jordan. A creative tab by the publisher extends the geography above the upper right margin. An inset Plan of Jerusalem with 16 architectural references is included in the lower right corer. The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, or SDUK was formed in 1826 and published low cost maps with the goal of reaching a large market while still maintaining high quality and precision.
