More Information

This is a splendid early example of Bastiaan Stoopendaal and Jacob Keur's c. 1730 map of Canaan (Israel or Palestine). Oriented to the west, this map covers the Holy Land from the Mediteranean to just beyond the Jordan River. This map purports to illustrate the Holy Land as it appeared at the time of Jesus Christ; however, numerous elements from earlier periods have been inherited from Stoopendaal's various source maps. These include a fleet of ships in the Mediterranean transporting cedar from Sidon to Jaffa for the construction of Solomon's Temple and, in ruin at the bottom of the Dead Sea, the corrupt cities of Sodom, Gammora, Seboim and Adama.

This map is derived from Nicholas Visscher's 1660 map of the same name, and though cartographically nearly identical, features updated decorative elements. These include scenes from the life and travels of Jesus along the bottom of the map.

This map was published by the Keur family in their popular Keur Bible. As one of the Dutch 'Staten' bibles published between 1637 and 1760, the Keur Bible contained five or siin x maps: Werlt Karte, Paradys, Perigrinations, Canaan, Ierusalem, Reysen Pauli, and sometimes Reyse der Kinderen Israels. This specific map was issued in the1730 edition of the Keur Bible.

What our customers are saying


I purchased an historic map, 16x24 inch. It is beautifully printed on heavy stock. The lettering, colors, and details of the map are crisp and easy to read. I am highly satisfied and would certainly purchase from Historic Pictoric again!

Kent A.

Ordered the Pan American Midway print to fit a lovely thrift-store gilded frame. I love showing off Buffalo's rich history and this is a pretty entertaining photo from 1901. Prompt shipping. Sturdy packaging.

Cindy O.

I received my print within days of ordering, and it arrived well packed in a mailing tube. The print is high quality and exactly as advertised. I will use Historic Pictoric again in the future!

Cheryl H.

Excellent product. Great fidelity in reproduction of the original. Fine/minute details were sharp, colors were vibrant, and thickness, texture and overall feel and quality of the paper were excellent. Very satisfied with my purchase.

Konrad B.

I have purchased six maps from Historic Pictoric. I find the quality to be excellent. Their customers service is also excellent. Outstanding! I called to exchange a few for different sizes and I could not have asked for a better experience.

Aaron C.

The original map I ordered lacked some of the detail that I had hoped for, but they responded with several more map possibilities to choose from. Excellent service- a far step beyond what anyone expects from online purchases.

Dan M.

I am a owner of 5 maps from Historic Pictoric. From Okinawa, 1945, Europe 1940-1945 battle maps. Now they’re helping me with the battle of Gettysburg. These maps are so much superior to the map on a page in a book. I have framed two of them.

Steven Ko

Great heavy paper quality and clarity of my nautical map. Will be a great addition to our home close to the beach!

What is Infinity Framing?

Wow Factor

Infinity frame

The image is printed on a durable fabric, which is stretched inside a slim aluminum frame. It’s transportable, interchangeable, and easy to assemble. Our infinity frame pieces for large sized prints will lend a “wow” factor to your space.

Better than Canvas

The colors in our fabric prints are crisp and true to life, with a matte, glare-free finish. With our printing process, the colors permeate the fabric, rather than settling on top, which reduces the risk of scratching or fading. Your art will last a long time!

Easy to Install

Assemble the frame in minutes, insert the fabric print into the grooves, and your art is ready to hang!

Statement Piece

Easy and modern way to display large art in your home or office
