The work

The map indicates the geographic area that is now known as Israel and Palestine. The map is originally engraved on a copper plate and dates back to 1876. The author is Eugène Andriveau-Goujon, a French cartographer.

The map is oriented with north at the top. The Mediterranean Sea is represented in blue, while the land is in green. Shows the political boundaries of the area at the time of its creation. Palestine is depicted as a single territory, bounded by the borders of the Ottoman Empire to the north, Egypt to the south, and the Mediterranean Sea to the west.

The map is rich in detail. It shows the main cities and villages of the region, as well as the main communication routes. The main places of religious and historical interest are also represented, such as the city of Jerusalem and Mount Sinai.

It is a precious historical document that provides an overview of the geographical area. It represents a time when Palestine was a single territory, inhabited by a mixed population of Christians, Muslims and Jews.

Eugène Anddriveau-Goujon was a map publisher and cartographer active in 19th-century Paris. Andriveau-Goujon maps are often with confusing signatures to identify as they are found under different names including J. Goujon, J. Andriveau, J.Andriveau-Goujon, E. Andriveau-Goujon or simply Andriveau-Goujon. This refers to the multiple generations of the Anddriveau-Goujon dynasty and the tendency to republish older material without updating the byline. The first maps to have the Andriveau-Goujon imprint were released by Jean Andriveau-Goujon.
