A coloured map or plan of Palestine, written in about A.D. 1400 in England
With letterpress in various parts and tables of distances: it extends from Sidon and Damascus to beyond the Dead Sea and embraces the country on both sides of the Jordan. It has been reproduced in coloured facsimile (in 1867) for the Roxburghe Club, to accompany William Wey's Itineraries to Jerusalem (A.D. 1458 and 1462): and has been supposed to be Wey's 'Mappa mea de Terra Sancta': but in that case it can hardly have been written, but rather owned, by him, as the date is early 15th cent. or even late 14th. The Itineraries are now MS. Bodl. 565 (O. C. 2351).
