Finely illustrated historical map of the Holy Land by Robert Mimpriss.

Robert Mimpriss (1797-1875) Had an important role in shaping Evangelical Christian children's education in Europe and America in the 19th Century. His history of the gospel in 100 lessons would become a staple in the mid-19th Century. Known as the 'Mimpriss system of graduated simultaneous instruction' for use in Sunday schools, his course was illustrated by tables, maps and charts, many drawn by Mimpriss himself.

Extending from Abilene to the Dead Sea and employing a series of fine pictorial vignettes, Mimpriss's map provides a comprehensive overview of every important location mentioned in the Gospel. Important routes of pilgrims and others travelers are shown, along with relevant quotes from scripture. Illustrated Biblical vignettes, include sections showing various events in Jerusalem, during the Crucifixion, and after the Resurrection. Additionally, it includes a chronology of Gospel history, a general summary of the Gospels, and a table crediting the geographers who have located places mentioned in the Bible. The reference key identifies the locations of 337 events from the Bible.
