Palestina Moderna 1480

This post is for reference. It shows a map of ‘Palestina Moderna’ dating from around 1480, based on one by Ptolemy in the second century CE. The original is in the Israel National Library.

The map was copied from the website of the Jewish National and University Library on 21 August 2013 at URL http://www.jnul.huji.ac.il/dl/maps/pal/html/eng/MapViewer.html?URL=../../images/pal0001/pal0001_a.jpg&Title=Palestina%20moderna%20et%20Terra%20Sancta

The library has now become the Israel National Library and the map is now available at http://dlib.nli.org.il/ by searching for ‘Palestina Moderna’. Note added July 2017: I can now only find the thumbnail using this search.
