Large 1882 Special Edition of Kitchener & Conder’s famous Map of Western Palestine.
This is an exceptional example of a special edition of Kitchener & Conder’s map of Western Palestine, published in 1882, the year following the issuance of the first edition of the map. It stretches along the eastern Mediterranean coast from Tyre in the north to Gaza in the south, inland to the Dead Sea up the Jordan River to the Sea of Galilee and Mount Hermon.
The original map consists of 26 sheets and is ordinarily found bound in atlas format; this version is laid on linen and folds nicely into its original case.
The present example of the map is heavily revised to illustrate drainage of the mountain ranges in the eastern part of the map, based on the work of Trelawney Saunders in An Introduction to the Survey of Western Palestine.
Two sheets, unjoined. Dissected and laid on linen, with original slipcase (worn).
