Holy Land - Jerusalem by Philippe Briet, published by Pierre Mariette. 1641

The map is divided into two parts: the lower part, a map of Palestine entitled as above, oriented to the east and divided according to the Tribes on both sides of the Jordan. The shoreline runs from "Sidon" to "Rhinocolura". The upper part is divided into three small maps: 1) "Syriae veteris descriptio", showing the Eastern Mediterranean and the Near East; 2) "Hierusalem", a plan of the ancient city; 3) "Exodus Israelis", showing the Wanderings of the Tribes from Ramses in Egypt through the Red Sea and the Sinai Peninsula until they reached Palestine.

According to Laor, this map appeared in Philippe de La Rue's La Terre Saincte en six cartes géographiques, but Pastoureau, who gives the list of the six maps in this atlas, doesn't mention this map. (Pastoureau, Les Atlas Français XVIe-XVIIe siècles. p. 293)
