Holy Land Maps


The JNUL (Jewish National and University Library), David & Fela Shapell Family Digitization Project is pleased to announce the opening to the public of the digital collection: Holy Land Maps. This project, based on the Eran Laor Cartographic Collection at the JNUL, contains over 1,000 maps dating from 1462 through the early 20th century.


Each map is presented in a variety of image formats, including the zoomable MrSid format (which requires a special plug-in, available atthe project site). The maps are arranged both chronologically and by persons (cartographers, engravers, etc.). A number of maps are arranged by specific locations such as Acre or Mount Tabor (maps of Jerusalem arein a separate, previous, site). The bilingual site also contains an introduction and links to relatedsites. Each map is accompanied by detailed bibliographic data.

Stuckenbergs Kartensammlung digital


“Dr. Stuckenberg had a life long interest in maps, and while living in Germany purchased the majority of his collection which consists of three 17th century atlases and over 500 separate maps from the 16th through the 19th century. A few of the cartographers represented in the collection are: Willem Jansoon Blaeu (1571-1638), Matthaus Seutter (1678-1756), and Tobias Conrad Lotter (1717-1777).”
