Very rare map of the Holy Land, by Jacob van Liesveldt. 1532-1560

Jacob van Liesveldt (Antwerp, c. 1489 - 1545)

Jacob van Liesvelt was born around 1489 in Antwerp as the son of the printer Adriaen van Liesveldt. He followed in his father's footsteps and started on his own as a printer and bookseller in 1513.
He published the first complete bible in the vernacular in Antwerp in 1526. Since much has been copied in the translation from the already partially published Luther Bible, the Spanish Inquisition banned the printing of this bible. However, Van Liesveldt continued to print, after which he was captured by the Inquisition, sentenced and already the next day, Nov. 28. 1545, beheaded. Most of the Liesveldt bibles were burned. The widow of van Liesveldt, Maria Anxt, published one more bible in 1560 that was no longer reformational.
From the 1532 edition on, the bible contains a Holy Land map, copied from a map by Vorsterman, which was in turn based on a wall map by Lucas Cranach (c. 1510). The map appears in the editions of 1532, 1533, 1538, 1542 and the Leuven bible of the widow van Liesveldt from 1560.
