¤ This is the second state of the Petrus Plancius bible map. D.R.M. Mathes, whose identity we don't really know (Doctor Rudolf Mercator, Mathematicus ??), made very small changes in the Plancius plates : the ovals in which there are pictures of biblical stories have been slightly changed. In the Mediterranean there is a compass rose.
Top right a small scale map of the whole Mediterranean. Around the map are 15 pictures with episodes from the Acts and the Apocalyps. - Poortman/Augusteijn, 82

¤ Carte de Palestine représentant les villes de Jaffa et Jérusalem. Inscriptions traduites en arabe sur la carte. - Topographic map of old Palestine showing the towns of Jaffa and Jerusalem with indications of the archaeological ruins. Pierre Jacotin (1765-1827) was a cartographer initially attached as geometrician to the land register of Corsica (1781-96). He followed Bonaparte to Egypt (1798) and quickly became director of the topographic operations. At his return in France (1801), he was promoted with the rank of colonel and was named chief of the topographic part of the general Deposit of the war. He preserved these functions until his death. He had a great part with the rapid progress made at that time in topographic engraving.
