Lida Ruitinga:

The Holy Land map by Lucas Cranach the Elder: The oldest map fragment in the Map Collection of the Free University of Amsterdam's Library

Cartographica Helvetica 9 (1994) 40–41


The two sheets described here complete a six-sheet map (the only known copy) in the Eran Laor Map Collection of the Hebrew University National Library, Jerusalem. The fragment has been bequeathed to the Free University of Amsterdam's Library in 1970 by a private collector. It has been identified in 1991 only following a publication on the Jerusalem fragment in issue 3 of this journal.
